Hi, welcome to the hive!

I would put it just as you did, with the nick name in quotes. I have seen it put that way several times.

I agree with tksjewelry – just put your middle name in quotes or parenthesis.  Anything else runs the risk of looking confusing for your guests.

@HappyCouple:  I have the same issue and have no idea what to do. Using your example, my ‘real’ name is Mary-Elizabeth (actually hypenated) but I only ever use Paris. Unless it is super official e.g. Passport, Drivers License, I use just Mary and people are shocked to find it isn’t officially my ‘real’ name. However, when I change my last name I plan to take away the hyphen and make it my middle name. e.g. instead of Mary-Elizabeth Rose Smith I will become Mary Elizabeth M. So what the hell do I use on the invitations? I definitely agree with your idea, a bit easier to fix really, haha, with the nickname in quotation marks 🙂
