That would be invalid. I know there are some families which do it. You
are free to enter a nickname at MyFamily parameter in your torrc, but
it won't actually work for clients. Tor will still start on relay side
and go on with it.
It used to work back when we were using Named / Unnamed flags. If the
relay had the Named flag, you could just enter its nickname at Tor
would automatically map that nickname to its proper fingerprint. It
did not work for relays with Unnamed flag or relays without both Named
and Unnamed flags.
I have opened a ticket for this on trac, but we fixed the FAQ.
