Wrong section, and not totally ircd related, so I'll lock after I answer this. Keep it in mind in future.

To disallow a nickname from being used in the IRCD SIDE of things, see the documentation on ban nick { }

To disallow registration/etc of a nick, it depends what your services are. Generally this can be accomplished through a NS FORBID.

NS FORBID also adds a Q:Line on the network, so users will get an error when trying to use it. There is also OS SQLINE that can do the same thing.
