Considering the fact that Ellison was always protective of his work -- he used the Cordwainer Bird pseudonym on a number of television episodes he was dissatisfied with -- the use of his real name on Star Trek is a bit odd, especially since he was vocally dissatisfied with the final episode.

Again, I think Harlan kept his name attached to Star Trek out of fear, but just not of the Great Bird.
As detailed in the Inside Star Trek book, Ellison did tell the Star Trek producers to use his Cordwainer Bird pseudonym. It was they who went to him to ask to use his real name.
