Why isn't my NT username created for Cygwin USER?

In NT, I have a username, lets call it, 'myname', which has admin rights (for the local PC). When I did a 
try mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd it never created a listing  for danr -- it created one for Administrator --- and that's what my $USER and home directory are set for. On the other hand, Cygwin set my $USERNAME to danr. What's going on here?
