Depends on the generation. With gens 1-3, usually it's all upper case, since half of the text in the game is upper case. In gens 4-5, I use proper capitalization.

All caps because that's part of the name THIEF.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Real life name, Capital uppercase rest under case.

the 2nd version would be different, probably a girl with whatever name i choose, the 3rd version is the same as the first.

Always proper punctuation, even in earlier gens where most names were in all caps. Proper grammar and punctuation is just how I roll.

It's not really proper if the rest of the proper nouns in the world are in all caps, though.

Awesome reference.

Abram(in kana)

I use "Abram" most of the time and just write it out in kana when I start a file in a Japanese game.

I write it normally when possible - putting everything in caps is annoying and looks dumb. "Thomas"

Always "Nick" (Nick2 in Gen V sequels), and with proper capitalization whenever possible
