What is the proper way to denote that a person is known by his/her middle name?

How do you indicate someone by their middle name?

My favorite is the middle name in all caps to indicate that’s the name they go by. So it would be Walter PETER Nobb.

  1. First and Middle Name: Walter Peter.
  2. Last Name: Nobb.
  3. Suffix: “Peter”
