For some reason, WikiTree doesn't seem to have a good way of handling people who go by their middle name. If you list the middle name as the "Preferred First Name" the name shown in their public profile is their middle name followed by their middle initial. If you list the middle name as a nickname, it's not shown at all in their public profile, but it appears twice in their private profile. There's got to be a better way of handling this. (And, since many of my relatives go by their middle names, I am encountering this problem over and over again.)
