If you can split the name and email address which are seperated by "<"- You will get an array of 2 elements- Name and Email(with a ">" at the end, you would have to delete it). Then in the first element- Name- You can split- using " " and then except the first element- You can concetenate the other elements of the array to get- "Mr" and "Full name".

You can use the split() method in the String API-

Let us know if you have any problem in implementing this. By the way- This is a crude way of doing it ;) , but it gets the work done.
