If you log in to ldsaccount.lds.org, you can change how your name is displayed. She can log in and do the same for her account.

There are some aspects of your name you can edit - others you cannot. Since the names are swapped between accounts, I have to wonder if somehow the MRNs were entered wrong. It's not unheard of for MRNs to get swapped between husband and wife on the temple recommends if they interview at the same time. You might want to open the directory and verify the correct MRN for each of you and check that against what's been entered on the account at ldsaccount.lds.org.
