Regular expression: swap author firstname and lastname

I dont speak english, sorry.
Working with calibre, I had a next problem:
How mass to change placed the firstname and lastname of author in a library by means of regular expression?
For example:
I have - Pelham Grenville Wodehouse
I need - Wodehouse Pelham Grenville

Is there possibility to do it at the read-out of metadatas from the file contents?

I hope for help, thanks
