Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Is it possible (or is there any plans to implement such feature) that allow you to have separate usernames per stack exchange site?

For example, on StackOverflow I'd like to use my realname as my username, but on some of the other sites I might prefer to use an alias, so far I can't seem to do this.

I changed my Display Name on one site and it replicated to the others.

No repro here. I can have different names (and gravatars) for different sites. – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 6 '10 at 16:59
Huh. I make doing this a matter of principle when active on a SE site. Never had a problem with it, but you could always just create a separate account. – Shog9 Oct 6 '10 at 17:09
I changed my Display Name on one site and it replicated to the others. That shouldn't have happened automatically. Are you 100% sure about this? That would be a bug – Pëkka Oct 6 '10 at 17:11
Your account on Personal Finance and Money has a different display name and you apparently haven't touched it since last month. Do you remember how you managed to accomplish that? – Grace Note Oct 6 '10 at 17:32
Trust me, this can be done. View my profile and click the accounts tab if you don't believe me. – The Unhandled Exception Oct 6 '10 at 22:51

This feature is already present.

If you don't believe me, click on my profile, click the accounts tab, and note that I have a different name on here and Gaming than I do on SO and the rest of the network.

Changing your name on one site does not replicate it to other sites.

Edit each one manually, and DO NOT click this button (located at the bottom of your 'Accounts' page):

It only replicates if you push the above button...Tried it myself...
