Virtual console login - Remember username?

I don't have a display manager installed so I get the default linux virtual console login shell everytime I start my PC. How do I make it remember the username?

In the /etc/inittab, there is ~~:S:wait:/sbin/sulogin.....maybe I can pass the username as an parameter? This is on Debian Wheezy.
