Wubi always sets your display name to that of your Windows account when you install, but the username will be whatever you choose. See here… – bcbc Jan 3 '14 at 17:34
I have another Wubi on Vista SP2 that does not have this issue. Each time I create new user account terminal comes up with the same name. – user176105 Jan 4 '14 at 0:58

This is because your login username is shown in the terminal, but you can have another display name (usually your real name) for gnome/Unity. If you go to settings-> user accounts, you can change the display name associated with your login.
