Should this not be WIE ist dein Benutzername, as is Wie is dein Name?

It should be either 'Was ist' (more informal) or 'Wie lautet' (more formal). 'Wie ist' sounds uncommon to me.

That's "How is your user name", and also "How is your name?" My name is just fine, thanks!

Try "Was ist deine Name?"

Maybe you're thinking of: "Wie hei├čt du?" -- that's "how are you called?" although it's usually translated to "what are you called?" because that's idiomatic.
