    Answered . Odd question for this forum to be sure but here goes...I would use whichever of the two middle names you have customarily used in the past.
    In other words, if your driver's license has one middle name, use that initial. It makes sense to use the middle name that you use most often.
    If you prefer to use both names or their initials, attach something in writing explaining this.
    Good luck
