A "proper" (i.e. lowest-energy) Lewis structure has the formal charges done correctly. The shape that the molecule assumes in nature will be that of lowest energy. So technically, yes, you should take formal charges into account when naming shape, but no more than you would for making a normal Lewis structure.
