Easier to give script solution if you give:
-example from file format
-how to do nickname sqlcmd
-db2 interpreter cmd syntax

I have not used db2 = don't know db2 interpreter syntax, but here is basic model to do it.

If file format is:
table1 nickname1
table2 nickname2

Run cmd format:
./nick2db2  somefile.txt

Then something like (nick2db2):
# or bash or dash or
> donick.sql
while read  table nickname xstr
       echo "SOMEDB2CMD '$table' '$nickname'  ;" >> donick.sql
done < "$nicknames"
echo "
-- commit or ...
" >> donick.sql

echo "Use db2 sql interpreter to run this donick.sql sqlfile"

After created nick2db2, give execute priviledges
chmod a+rx nick2db2
