Hello all,
As the Prophet Russel M. Nelson emphasizes the name of Church, what do ykou think the appropriate name entry when placing Religion in some forms? Thanks.

That really depends on the form instructions and what is available. I have put christian when religion is requested. But I put in the full official church name when the form requires a church name.

Have you tried finding your answer on the ChurchofJesusChrist.org Help Center?

I am guessing that you are asking this because on many forms it would be difficult or impossible to write the full name due to space limitations.
The person reading the form needs to be able to identify which church for data entry so I would think that LDS needs to be included as it is very common and readily recognizable. Example hospital admittance form so the Elders can visit. So maybe:
Jesus Christ (LDS)
J.Christ (LDS)
T.C.O.J.C.O.L.D.S.
