Good morning,

If the most commonly presented form of a person's name includes some parts in all caps, is that capitalization considered part of the preferred name?  For instance, if I commonly presented my own name as Jenifer MARQUARDT, would I begin to establish the AAP using MARQUARD, Jenifer?

I've been poking about in RDA, the NACO training slides, and the PCCList archives but haven't found the information.

Thank you in advance for pointing me in the right direction!
