You can exclude all the Alternate name fact by editing the fact at Lists, Fact type lists. Or mark the fact as Private on the Edit person screen and exclude Private facts from a gedcom.

You can't exclude just the nickname entered as part of a name.

The following was overheard at a recent high society party...
"My ancestry goes all the way back to Alexander the Great," said one lady. She then turned to a second woman and asked, "How far does your family go back?"
"I don't know," was the reply. "All of our records were lost in the flood."
