As you've cited the relevant section of the PPAP manual, you must have seen the part where it says "Material test results shall indicate and include...the material supplier's name..." (Pages 6-7 of the 4th Edition)

This means that you must "indicate and include" the name of the supplier. If you don't wish to divulge that information, you'll need a documented waiver of the requirement from your customer.

It's fairly unusual to see a PPAP material test report that meets all of the requirements given in 2.2.10.1 and the expectations of customers in this regard vary widely. Notwithstanding the fact that you might be able to get your PPAP approved without explicitly naming the supplier(s), the requirement is clear.
