Is that why you changed your fake name? Because you realised you used your daughter's name?

Firstly, if she wants people to call her Nikki, you can't stop that. You don't have to call her Nikki, that's your choice, but you can't control what others call her.

On the rude and disrespectful attitude, have consequences. DO NOT accept her treating you like she wants. Hold her accountable for her behaviour.

A lot of people have nicknames that they prefer to go by, it's not a big deal. Like Jodi said, you don't have to call her by that name.
On the attitude: Make sure you have consequences and follow through with the punishment.
