Swapping first and last name field contents

In the field swap dialog, it isn't possible to swap first and last name field contents because (from what I understand) they are system fields and populated from the contact field. We have a lot of imported contacts which have built up over time and a reasonable number of them were only supplied with a first name which has subsequently ended up in the last name field.

 

Is there any way to swap the contents of those two fields for selected contacts without going through each one manually?

The only way I could see this being done is to go in via the backend database to do it directly. You might also have a look at Design R1 Swiss army knife application and see if it is possible via that 3rd party tool www.designr1.com
