Q: What is the difference between nickname and moniker ?
A: "Moniker" is a slightly fancier word for "nickname," so they basically have the same meaning :) However, in terms of nuance and usage, I think "moniker" is used when giving someone an unusual nickname (like a nickname that is not derived from their real name but from a certain skill they have or something they remind you of.)

For example:
A man named James might have the nickname "Jim." If he wrestles alligators, he might have the unique moniker "Gator."
A girl named Elizabeth might have the nickname "Liz." If she smiles a lot, she might have the moniker "Smiley."
A woman named Anastasia might have the nickname "Stacy." If she's dainty and soft-spoken like royalty, she might have the moniker "Princess."

You could use them interchangeably, and English speakers will still understand what you mean, but I think it would sound more natural if you understand the slight difference between them before using them :)

After punching in, he would munch (paku-paku) the bread he had brought, and drink some water directly from the tap. Supposedly that's the reason for his nickname: "Paku-san". Does this sound natural?
