Doing this in a language such as C# would have been a trivial task.

It would have given you a lot more flexibility in handling e.g. standard name parts that are not capitalized, such as Ludvigvan Beethoven, Charlesde Gaulle or Bengtaf Klintberg. Lots of other special cases and variations could be handled in a much more maintainable way.
I have linked to this several times earlier, but it cannot be repeated too often: Geek & Poke: Yesterday's regex[^]

You cannot expect your name matching to be perfect on the first try. Or second. Or third. E.g. a list of prepositions such as "van", "de", "af" ... will grow and grow. Adding them to a C# list is far easier than updating your regex.
