You're thinking logically, that's your problem.

In most applications, a "user name" is a piece of private information, like your password.  Not so in Second Life.  While you do use your user name for log in purposes, it's also your NAME, your identity in world, and other people can see it (and indeed, SHOULD be able to see it, because it is the only way to truly see that you are you.)

I've advocated for a private username system, with both username and password as confidential data, for ages now.  Linden Lab is muttering about making more changes to the naming system, so maybe this time sanity will break out.
