Hello Elodie Genot,
Your name is currently shown in the User Interface as Genot Elodie
To show it as Elodie Genot you should hit the Edit page near the bottom of the page at Genot Elodie and select Name Correction or Merge ... Add correction
then hit Continue

Add your name as Elodie Genot and give an explanation of why it should be changed
Untick the box saying Preserve previous name on existing credits.

Select the correct form of your name.
It will show it as lastname, firstname like Genot, Elodie because it wants to order names alphabetically by last names
Tick the box saying Correct the name to 'Genot, Elodie' - do not merge it with another name.
Tick the box saying Warning understood, go ahead anyway to acknowledge that you know what you're doing when you selected NOT to Preserve the previous name
Hit Re-check these updates
The background should turn green(ish) and it should offer you a Submit button
Hit the Submit button. Then sit back and wait for your submission to be checked, approved and for the database to be updated
