Comment(by denzel_chia):

 Hi Nacin,

 Again, thanks for the clarification,

 That explains why my user_login is the same as my user_nicename.
 There is no space in my username, and it is all in lowercase character.

 My suggestions;

 1) If the user_login has no space and in all lowercase, WordPress
 automatically adds something trailing to the user_login, when creating the

 2) Or perhaps provide a user interface in WordPress Admin user profile
 page to change the user_nicename, such as display author name in author
 link as....? Just like we are able to change the Display name publicly

 The immediate issue I can think of is,
 Anyone can enter the username in wp-login.php to reset the password, if
 the user_login happens to be in lowercase and no space and username is not
 case sensitive. Although it does no harm, but it is still a nuisance.

 For now I will change my user_nicename from the user table.
