Changing Display Form of User().Name

I made an App for my Project Managers through which they can actualize their Projects.

In the first Screen they now see all active Projects while I'd like them to only see the one they are managing.

In order to achieve this I inserted a Search function in the Gallery Item Propriety whcih works if one inserts his name manuelly in the Search Bar I made.

I'd like the App to automatically show the right Projects by matching the User().Name with the Names in the Managers Column of my Database. The Problem i encountered is that the Names in my Database are stored as Initial First Name. Last Name (Ex. J. Smith).

How might I transform the name which I get from User().Name in this form?


Thank you very much.
