If you don't want to keep a login name any more, you should delete it by using the "DROP LOGIN" statement as shown in this tutorial example:

-- Login with "sa"

DROP LOGIN Dba_Login;
GO
Command(s) completed successfully.

-- View login names
SELECT name, sid, type, type_desc FROM sys.server_principals
   WHERE type = 'S';
GO
name      sid                                 type type_desc
