    Practice it:

    When you select a nick, speak it out aloud and judge how it sounds. Do some practice with pronouncing it as any friend of yours will do. If it sounds too awkward or hard to pronounce, do not go for it. Ask a family member and close friend about their opinion of the name and ask them to call you a few times by using it. If you like how it sounds, go for it.
