If you erased the machine, there shouldn't have been any users to log out of. Seems like you didn't actually wipe the machine.

That might be a default OS-constructed hostname. If you're sure you wiped the machine properly, don't worry about it.

Open Sytem Preferences->Sharing and change the Hostname to what you want and relaunch Terminal, to easy!
