You have a conflicting problem.

You start off with talking about how you use the nick JohnDoe, then change it to JaneDoe. Then you end the question with is there a way you can tell if someone else does it.

So what does that have to do with if you did the /nick?

If someone else did it, add both JohnDoe and JaneDoe to notify. Then, in most cases, the server sends you their mask. If it doesn't, then do the /whois. So /notify JohnDoe and /notify JaneDoe.
