[jats-list] Authors identified by initials only

I'm seeking some advice or precedent on capturing authors who are identified
only by their initials. This is something we see sometimes in 19th-century

Assuming we can identify the initial for the surname, I'm thinking of
something like (for author "F.N.L."):


or perhaps

  <surname initials="L"/>
  <given-names initials="FN"/>

Does anyone have a recommendation or established practice for this situation?

Many thanks,
