I think you misunderstood slightly. I believe the question relates to "over the shoulder" reading of the username. The idea being to hide the username in the title bar so that the person sitting next to you cannot see that you are logged in using a given username.

Yes, perhaps I misunderstood.
You are saying that the question relates to hiding any users name, even if the user name is, for example "My Secret", the user would like to hide that as well, with a generic, "Welcome, John" or whatever.
I can check to see if vB has a plugin for that, if it is really a desired feature.
OK. Not a big deal. I just thought it would be nicer to be greeted by my name then by my login userid. The side benefit I saw was that it provided a bit of anonymity in the sense that it doesn't matter if I'm in a library or at work, my name (or nickname - fake or real) would be what people (or coworkers see) instead of my username/userid. Hence, if they see just 'Matt' or 'Dave' (assuming there are thousands of Matt or Dave on this site), for example, they can't go track down what all my issues were and see how lamo some of my questions may have been or how much time I spend helping other people instead of doing my work...LOL. Just kidding about the last part but I'm sure there must be people out there who sees the side benefit as well, no? I have no issues with my username though, but thank you for your responses.
