I'm back now and continuing.
Well, I think there may be several ways to mark proper names.

1. Lines according to Stefan W.
2. Coloring -- but only for educational purposes. Colors are used in writing spoken languages for grammar purposes too. But it may be inconvenient in everyday use, for example when writing a note with a pencil to somebody.
3. Fingerspelling - but I think it should be also "highlighted" in a way for proper names. Maybe, with two "/" marks, used like quotation marks?
4. Spoken language alphabet transcription put in square brackets just after the SW proper name sign, like [Lucyna]. (Translations in brackets are also commonly used in spoken language writing).
5. Vertical line.
6. ????
