See -help f_proper-

    proper(s) returns a string with the first letter capitalized and
any other letters
        immediately following characters that are not letters
capitalized, and all
        other letters converted to lowercase.
        proper("mR. joHn a. sMitH") = "Mr. John A. Smith"
        proper("jack o'reilly") = "Jack O'Reilly"
        proper("2-cent's worth") = "2-Cent'S Worth"
