    Hi Subhendu,

    1. Nicknames in Salesforce is used for community. Nicknames appear in place of first and last names in almost all locations in the community.
    2. You have to Enable Nickname in Community Administration by the following steps
      1. Open Community Workspaces or Community Management.
      2. Click Administration --> Preferences.
      3. Select Enable nickname display, then click Save.
    3. Enabling nickname display in your community allows more privacy and protects member identities. This protection is especially helpful in a public community where unregistered visitors can access member profiles.

    Hope this helps you.
