I have a web search function that takes a first and last name, assembles it into a single string and then searches it against a full text catalog of names.  The issue I'm having is that I need to remove duplicates from the string in a t-sql function before searching:

INPUT:  Jean VonJean, Jean Ann

DESIRED RESULT: VonJean, Jean Ann

It's a rare circumstance but reaking havoc with the app.  :-)
