OSX Lion – Remove Full Name from appearing in menu bar?

One more oddity about OSX Lion is that with fast user switching turn on, suddenly your full name appears in the menu bar. ┬áTurn this off by going to System Prefs -> Users & Groups -> Login Options (click unlock if everything is greyed out) ->Show fast user switching menu as… ┬áhere you can uncheck to remove it completely or switch to an icon or short name.

Or for a quicker solution, CMD-Drag the name out of the menu bar.
