Hi all, 

I have a variable called "name" which lists several different airlines.
I need to write some code that will identify a regular expression within
these names and assign them a value in the new variable "group_name"

For instance, for the two names:

A.I.F. GMBH
A.I.F. COMPANY

I would want the group_name to be only "A.I.F." (the part of the string
they both share). The identifying string does not occur in the same
position across the names. 

Any help is greatly appreciated.
