Hello, world! (\Citealt[32]{Doe2999})

\bibliographystyle{chicago}
\bibliography{mybib}{}

\end{document}

(Sorry, I don't know how to emulate mybib file.)

In the bibliography it shows:

Doe, J. (2999). title. City: Publisher

Whereas, 16th edition of Chicago Manual of Style says it shoud be:

Doe, John. 2999. title. City: Publisher

Is it possible to update natlib chicago definitions?

Make a copy of chicago.bst, say mychicago.bst, and put it in a place where BibTeX can find it. Now make the following changes to your copy:

  1. Change the function output.year.check as indicated to remove the parentheses around the year:

    FUNCTION {output.year.check}
    { year empty$
         { "empty year in " cite$ * warning$ }
         { write$
            " " year * extra.label *    %% changed: removed opening parenthesis for year
           month empty$
              {}                        %% changed: removed closing parenthesis for year
              { ", " * month * }        %% changed: removed closing parenthesis for year
           if$
           mid.sentence 'output.state :=
         }
      if$
    }
    
  2. In function format.names change the two lines 395, 396 from

    {s nameptr "{vv~}{ll}{, jj}{, f.}" format.name$ 't := }
    {s nameptr "{f.~}{vv~}{ll}{, jj}" format.name$ 't := }
    

    to

    {s nameptr "{vv~}{ll}{, jj}{, ff}" format.name$ 't := }  %% changed: full first names
    {s nameptr "{ff~}{vv~}{ll}{, jj}" format.name$ 't := }   %% changed: full first names
    

    to obtain full first names of the authors.

  3. To get the period after the author's names, add add.period$ after every occurrence of format.authors, e.g., in line 1013 for articles, line 1038 for books. Overall I counted twelve such occurrences.
  4. Save the file, and use mychicago as your bibliography style.
