My team and I trying to figure our how to best display someone's chosen/preferred name on the UI.

The problem we're trying to solve is, how do you make a distinction between legal and chosen name?

Option 1: Johnathan (John) Smith

Option 2: Johnathan "John" Smith

Option 3: Johnathan Smith Chosen name: John

Thank you!

Given this is the preferred name, everyone is going to have a preferred method of how their name is displayed. You could give your options as a dropdown - or you could simply have 2 fields:


Display name (shown on your profile/in communication with others/...)
[____________________________________]


Legal name (used for contracts)
[____________________________________]

Among other things, typographic visual variables are also useful for this.

Inclination

Johnathan John Smith
