You could create a custom view to export. The steps below are from MS http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath-help/tips-for-getting-the-most-out-of-export-to-excel-HA001122791.aspx

In design mode, click Manage Views on the View menu.
Under Actions in the Views task pane, click Add a New View.
In the New view name box in the Add View dialog box, type a name for the new view.
 NOTE   Be sure to give the view a name that clearly identifies its purpose for your users. For example, you can name it Data to Export.

Copy and paste the controls that collect the data users will need to export into the new view.

Above "Almost" works.

I created a simple view :

First Name      Last Name

Joe                 Smith


In Excel it shows as :


Nam (my:myFields/my:Nam)      LNam (my:myFields/my:LNam)
Joe                                                 Nash


Do you know how to get rid of   addtional entires: my:myFields/my:Nam   ??

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Is there no option to just show the simple header names in the export wizard? Hang on and I'll try to connect to my computer that has infopath and see if I can find it.

Ah. It's pulling the names from the XML so you really can't change that. The headers will look like that unless you change them in Excel after exporting.
(You could probably write a complex macro to do this for you, but I'm guessing it's not worth it).

Curious to know where did you see the XML.

On the right side in Excel it opened up the XML dataviewer thing.
