I’d follow the pattern used in these RDA AAPs:
Miller, William “Skip”
Pickens, Ryan “Slim”, 1972-
I don’t see anything in RDA that says to ‘deconstruct’ the elements of a personal name and prefer some elements more than others.
Of course, ant variety of VAPs might be added.

I can't find any guidance for dealing with a name that appears in source as, in this instance, XJ 'George' Bailey. Perhaps Bailey, XJ with a 400 for Bailey, George?
