The prefix is a safety / security item. If a hacker was trying to guess the name of a database to gain access to, then he'd run through a bunch of common names. But adding the user_ prefix adds difficulty, as now the hacker would have to guess the username as well.

Plus having username prefix makes it easy when navigating the database with phpmyadmin, as you can see what tables belong to which user instead of guessing
