Is there a "preg replace" or something similar that will insert spaces between lc letters & uc letters?

Hi Guys,
An external database that I have no access or control of is returning proper names in the following format "FirstLast" instead of "First Last".
I need to put a space between the First and Last names without losing the initial caps.
I think there may be a "preg_replace" type of solution for this problem but I don't know what it is. Can you help?
Thanks,
Sas

Haven't tested this too much but seems to work

<?php
$name="FirstLast";

echo preg_replace('/([a-z])([A-Z])/', "$1 $2", $name);

Open in new window
