When my Mac screen is locked and anybody touches keyboard or mouse, Mac shows my short user name and empty password box.

Is there any way to hide short name so others don't see it?

You probably want: System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Options >Display login window as: Name and password. You'll then have to type in your name first.
