Answer

This looks to be a duplicate of this post, but here's a solution for you to consider:

import pandas as pd

df = pd.read_excel('input.xlsx')

df['First Name'], df['Last Name'] = df['Applicant Name'].str.split(',', 1).str
del df['Applicant Name']

df.to_excel('output.xlsx')

Output (in python):

First Name  Last Name
0   -   Mohammed Abdul Naser Aziz
1   -   Gottipati Harshavardhan
2   -   Sandeep Kaur
3   .   Rounak
4   abbas   Syed
5   Abbas   Mohd Manzar
6   Abbasi  Fatema
7   Abdelkader  BEKHTIE
