    My mother'd be happy ( short form of 'would')

    Is it natural and correct to use short form of "would" with proper nouns?
    Example:
    John'd be happy.

    Is the sentence in the title of this post correct?

    In speech, we could use both of those, but they're less likely to be used in writing.
