Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Hi try,

Code:
=MID(A4,FIND(",",A4,1)+2,LEN(A4)-FIND(",",A4,1))&" "&MID(A4,1,FIND(",",A4,1)-1)

There maybe a shorter way but i think it should work.

Example given is with name in cell A4.
