Yes, it is your username. Any linkage from that to your "public name"
would be maintained on your user page - if you wish.

Think of it as a SHOULD rather than a MUST.

Anything in PascalCase becomes a link to a wiki page of that name.
Usernames are created in this form so references to the user
automatically become links to that user's page in the wiki.

It isn't a feature we use much at the moment. A quick check shows that
most, but not all, contributors have created their user name in PascalCase.

For example, take a look at https://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/AndrewCarr
