To hide your WordPress blog's author or user profile from appearing in Google Search results when people search your name, then follow the procedure below.  

  • Install Yoast SEO plugin 
  • Go to Users
  • Click edit 
  • Scroll to Yoast SEO settings and tick the checkbox indicated "Do not allow search engines to show this author's archives in search results." 
  • Click Update User   

What this does is that it adds a nonindex robots meta tag that tells Google and other search engines not to display the user's profile in search results.
