I don't think that's possible, in that you cannot search for a string at the 
start of the name.
But if your naming is consistent enough that you always have "-vancouver" when 
it's not at the start of the name (and not names like "street vancouver xxx" 
or underscores instead of dashes), you can search for that. Then perhaps the 
rename function allows you to swap parts of the name (not tried/checked).
