I have a requirement where in i have validate a company name which accepts only:
Alphabets
numbers
apostrophe
a space between each word

The name shall always start with a alphabet and if there are multiple words only 1 space shall be allowed.
last letter of the name can also be apostrophe.


Can someone guide me how to write such regex.

Thanks
Rajiv
