Lower case name except for first letter

Column A has a list of names that have all the characters capitalized. I would like to change this so it is only the first character capitalized and then the rest is lower case. Is there a way to do it? I expect some formula for column B?

Thanks!

Just a side note: if these are names, "proper-casing" is not always the best choice since only the first letter will be capitalized and you will potentially end up with incorrectly capitalized names such as "Mcdonald" and "O'connor" and "Depalma" (which should probably be dePalma) Of course, these are exception cases that could be manually adjusted afterwards if you can find them all.
