I'm already the first result that comes up when the search term is simply my website name, and I doubt removing the name of my site as a heading tag is going to change that (since it's a pretty unique phrase). I would guess that it is probably better to have the first text on each page be what the topic of the page is actually about (although, the navigation bar, which has text in it, would still come first). I guess that's a secondary question. If it's better to have your keywords closer to the top of the page or the first thing on the page, would it be better to have those heading tags that actually describe the page come before the navigation bar?

You should use them in the way that unsophisticated users expect. The page title really isn't for the user, though, as few people bother to look for it. There is no reason NOT to use the same text in your H1 as in your title. It DOES give you some repetition and emphasis but it's not like the search engines are going to split the list down the middle and say, "Well, all these are using the same text in the title and H1 and all those are using different text."
Do what you feel most comfortable with and don't worry about "doing stuff for SEO".
