My Sites Search Results in SharePoint 2013

When I search a name, the search engine break up and combine the letters in the name with another words and returned in the search results. Example, I search for Mary it returns both Mary and Martin.

It returns Martin in the search results because Martin contains 'Mar' in the name with job title 'T'echnician and working in 'In'formation Techonoloy Department. How can I configure the search engine to search for name as a string and to search within the name field. Please help, thanks.
