If you are using a nickname on a paypal legal financial account then it probably won't be long before you have a permanent ban.

You can only change the name on a paypal account for legal reasons or for a 2 character typo error.

To be honest your best bet is to close that account down if you can and its not limited and open one in your legal name maybe?
