Yes. No matter what, a Pokémon keeps it's nickname. Evolving is not some sort of way to "dump" a nickname you got traded. There is really no way to get rid of traded nicknames.

Best thing you can do is use it to breed another one.

You might be getting nicknames confused with Foreign names. If you for a Sneasel from someone from japan, (And had no nickname) it would have originally been ニューラ and then it would have evolved and been called "Weavile".

This doesn't happen with nicknames.
