I think it would be less difficult than Jan's case.  In his case "pavel" is 
going to get an overly-large result set and since the approach I'm suggesting 
would search for "m" in any field, "pavel m" wouldn't narrow the result set 
much at all.

For databases that use full names, it's more likely that, for example, a 
search for "baptiste mathus" wouldn't find many images that don't contain you 
(of course, if your database is anything like mine, there aren't many images 
of you in it -- I tend to be the one behind the camera, not in front of 
it :-) ).
