If this is coming from an XML file, you SHOULD have fields in the XML specific to each type of name. If not, you have very badly malformed data in the file making it pretty much useless, unless there is another field in the same record telling you what type of name is in the record. Without that discriminator field, the data you're pulling from the XML is useless.

You cannot use a RegEx to distinguish between a person name and a city name in the same field. It's just not possible, even for a human to determine by hand.
