It is possible to change the appearance of the input values to uppercase (capitalized), it is also possible in the email notification, this can be done using CSS text-transform, however, this is only aesthetic. The input values will still be saved in your submissions as it is (how it was entered).
If you need more help on it, I can create a simple demo script and walk you through it.

Thanks for your reply. We do need to make the actual data captured have the capitals at the beginning as we want to push it into our own database once we've collected info and unless we push in capitalised names, all our output will be in lowercase :(
So your first option which, as you say, is just aesthetic won't work.
If I understand this second option correctly, this rely's on us embedding your form on a webpage somewhere but we wanted to direct our visitors directly to the form without it being embedded.

Unfortunately, we do not have an option or feature that will directly change the first letter or the whole word to uppercase. The only way to do this is embed the form using the form's full source code and create a custom script.
Here's a simple test page where I have embedded my form and added a custom script: https://shots.jotform.com/charlie/uppercase_input.html
I hope this gives you an idea on how to proceed.
