I've been using one these in a functions' lambda list behind &optional:
interp intrp inter-p intr-p

I think these are clear, reasonably terse,  and in keeping with the
suggestions of docstring for `interactive-p':

| If you want to test whether your function was called with
| `call-interactively', the way to do that is by adding an extra
| optional argument, and making the `interactive' spec specify non-nil
| unconditionally for that argument.  (`p' is a good way to do this.)'
