Hello. I would like to create a new User Profile Property that would combine Last and First name properties (from Active Directory). Is that possible to do? I am using SharePoint 2010.

No.  But can you just import from DisplayName?

Sorry....that is already imported to the Name field in SharePoint.  This doesn't work for you?

Unfortunately DisplayName would produce Firts name, Last name. I need Last name, First name. This is likely an Active Directory issue, but I would like to avoid all risky business with it.
