In the plone.app.layout egg, under the viewlets/ directory, there is a file
named common.py that defines the behavior of the personaltools area:

class PersonalBarViewlet(ViewletBase):
    render = ViewPageTemplateFile('personal_bar.pt')

    def update(self):
        super(PersonalBarViewlet, self).update()

        context_state = getMultiAdapter((self.context, self.request),
        tools = getMultiAdapter((self.context, self.request),
        sm = getSecurityManager()

        self.user_actions = context_state.actions().get('user', None)

        plone_utils = getToolByName(self.context, 'plone_utils')
        self.getIconFor = plone_utils.getIconFor

        self.anonymous = self.portal_state.anonymous()

        if not self.anonymous:
            member = self.portal_state.member()
            userid = member.getId()
            if sm.checkPermission('Portlets: Manage own portlets',
                self.homelink_url = self.site_url + '/dashboard'
                self.homelink_url = self.site_url + '/author/' +
            member_info = tools.membership().getMemberInfo(member.getId())
            fullname = member_info.get('fullname', '')
            if fullname:
                self.user_name = fullname
                self.user_name = userid

My suggestion is to alter the Python code (in your own theme product) to
suppress the user name.

If that's too difficult, you can probably do it using CSS:

#user-name {display:none; }
