Do not switch the values only the /

The Gedcom standard says that // around a name denotes a surname. Surnames can come in any order and while FTM does not support all cases, it does, IIRC, support /surname/ given as well as given /surname/.

Once reimported FTM will "fix" the problem. Even if it is really not a problem if your culture place family name before given name!!
