If you want to see a list of all login names defined on the server, you can use the system view, sys.server_principals as shown in this tutorial exercise:

-- Login with sa

SELECT name, sid, type, type_desc FROM sys.server_principals
   WHERE type = 'S';
GO
name      sid                                 type type_desc
--------  ----------------------------------- ---- ---------
sa        0x01                                S    SQL_LOGIN
FYI_DBA   0x348AF32B3B58CB40B67A5F5B7086B96E  S    SQL_LOGIN
Fyi_Login 0x5EB8701EAEBAA74F86FCF5BD8E37B8C5  S    SQL_LOGIN

So you have two login names on the server at this moment.
