Could the name Icko found on the Yad Vashem database be a nickname or a
familiar name for Yitzchak?.

My Grandfather Yitzchok was named on a Berlarusian document as "Itsco"
My guess is that Icko is a variant of the same, probably pronounced as
Itsco.

Yes, it is.
Note that "c" in Polish is pronounced as the English "ts".
