in which context?

- Nickname in a chatroom
- Nickname of a contact on your contact list
- your own Nickname in the vCard

in XMPP there is no nickname like in other IM systems. You can choose the Nickname for your contact on the roster yourself when you add them.
But there is a Nickname field in your vCard.

A common method in XMPP is to read the Nickname from the Vcard when it is available. Lots of clients to that. So just update your vCard.

Vcard sample code is included in the MiniClient.
