Is there a way of making biblatex entries that can handle authors whose first name does not match their initials? For example, the initials of Didi Gregorius are M. J. I want biblatex to produce M.J. Gregorius when giving names with initials, but Didi Gregorius when given full names.

You can use the extended syntax to input names. It is described in the biber manual.

%test.bib
@article{initials,
author={given=Didi, given-i={M.J.L}, family=Gregorius},
title ={some title},
journal={Journal},
year={2020}
}

@article{initials2,
author={given=Markus, family=Gregorius},
title ={some title},
journal={Journal},
year={2020}
}
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[style=authoryear]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{test.bib}
\begin{document}

\textcite{initials}
\textcite{initials2}

\printbibliography
\end{document}
