When a man uses his middle name as his first name, how do you address the envelope. Say his name is Jonathan Michael Smith. He goes by Micheal Smith every day. Do you still address the invitation Mr. Jonathan Smith?
This question is in regards to FI’s uncle who we never talk to, and I didn’t even KNOW his name wasn’t “Michael” until two days ago.

We had a couple cases like this where we just wrote “Mr. Jonathan Michael Smith” for them. You could also write “Mr. J. Michael Smith.”

My Father-In-Law goes by his middle name–we addressed his invite as his full name–Mr. Jonathan Michael Smith in your case.

Either use his full name or use Mr. J. Michael Smith.

If you’re addressing you invites formally (ie Mr. and Mrs. John Smith, etc) then you should address it to his actual first name (Mr. Jonathan Smith). Its kind of along the same lines as someone who goes by a nickname/ shortened name (Kathryn goes by Katie) – you’d address it with the actual full name, Kathryn.
