Is the meta name=”author” tag actually good for SEO?

I noticed that every time I search on google for one of my pages, the sentence "Alvaro Trigo’s blog" is added to the title results on Google when the title is not very long:

enter image description here

I don’t think that it actually helps to get any more clicks as nobody cares who the author is and it makes the title more verbose and more difficult to read.

I assume Google is getting it form the meta tag:

  <meta name="author" content="Alvaro Trigo" /> 

Wouldn’t I probably get a higher CTR if just remove it from all my blog posts? Are there any cons that I should know before doing it?
