    If your text is in A1, then in A2 type
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Found this myslef not so long ago, only works for first three initials though. Still learning text manipulation so not sure how to modify this yet untill I fully understand how it all works.

    Extremely messy I know but this will work out up to 4 initials. It finds modifies the text by removing the left most name each time hence the length of the formula.

    EDIT: Wrap this in UPPER to ensure result is in capitals (if you need this to be the case):

    =UPPER("above formula")
