I don't know FTM well enough to know if it has a hidden utility, but what you should be able to do is export the DB as a GEDCOM file and change:

1 NAME lastname /first/

-to-

1 NAME /lastname/ first

Then import that GEDCOM as a new family tree and see if everything is corrected.

To change the GED file you can open it up in "Notepad".

NEVER open one of these in a word processor program!
