Yes, as long as the nickname is sufficient to identify you as party to the contract, but generally a full legal name is better able to do this.
What is considered my full legal name?
Full legal name means an individual’s first name, middle name(s), and last name or surname, without use of initials or nicknames. Full legal name means the applicant’s first name, middle name(s), and last name, without the use of initials or nicknames, as it appears on the applicant’s presented source documents.
Does a misspelled name void a contract?
If you sign a document incorrectly, the contract may become unenforceable. If a contract is unenforceable, a court cannot force either party to perform its obligations under the contract. However, an incorrect signature does not mean that the contract falls apart altogether.
