Default IF and ISERROR Functions

In Excel 2003, I have a list of names in column A and column C; I need to
find any duplicates between the two columns. Column A has 469 rows and
Column C has 4713 rows. Example -- Column A -- Duck Donald and Column B --
Duck Donald

I found the formula below and it does work, but I need to know if I can use
a wildcard character in this formula to also find for instance: in Column A
-- Duck Donald and in Column B -- Duck Donald D. The difference being the
middle initial D. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

=IF(ISERROR(MATCH(A10,$C$1:$C$4713,0)),"",A10)
