gmail - i see another name next to mine, why would this happen?

I've suddenly had another name show up next to mine in the upper right hand corner of the display, it says atthezoo.  Would someone clue me in on why or what's happening here.
I'm wondering if my gmail account has been hacked.

To change that back, you will want to go up to the little gear symbol next to the name in the top right of the screen. Click that and go to account settings. Then next to dashboard in the middle of the screen choose "view data stored with this account." Then click on "edit personal information" and change the name to what you want. If this has changed without your control then either someone has guessed your password or you left a computer logged in to your gmail and someone decided to play a trick on you.

You may want to change your password and check sent messages to make sure you haven't sent emails that you did not send yourself.

Thanks for helping me out.  I did check the sent msg's and didn't see anything unusual, and I've changed my password.

Then you should be in good shape, I wouldn't worry too much unless it happens again.
