You can’t capitalize in speech anyway, so you’re just talking about conventions for transcription.

If you want to glorify a name, pronoun, epithet, or other reference when writing it, you have many options. Make the whole thing bigger. Underline it. Use a different typeface. Give it a distinctive color, or an aura, or a special symbol before or after it. Put sparkles around it.

Upper case letters in an alphabet aren’t universal, but there are other ways to indicate a word as being special.
