wrong name on the train tickets

Help!!!!!!
I just purchased tickets Strasbourg-Metz and Metz-Paris.
First of all its says on the ticket Metz Ville-is it correct train station?

Second of all, I put by mistake my first name in place of last name and last name in place of first name. What should I do now? I e-mailed voyages-sncf.com
about my mistake, but would they answer me??

Any advice?

On the name, I would not worry. This is not like airline flight. I have never had my name validated on a train in Europe and we travel by train frequently.

Do confirm the city as I have taken trains to the wrong town.

We can't say which station you should get off at. It depends where you're going.

The reverse name isn't an issue. Whether they respond to you or not, the conductor will look at your ID and figure out that you made a simple, common mistake. Fugeddabout it.

No, they are not, and you asked about this in another post and got several clear answers.

It's not unusual for French officialdom to refer to people surname first in legal documents and the like, anyway. Don't worry about it.

No problem about the name. Metz-Centre, Metz-Ville, Metz -- all the same station.

No I am completely confused, Some saying that Metz Centre and Metz Ville same train station, other saying its not. When I was purchasing tickets I put in a search Metz Centre, but when printed e-tickets, its printed as Metz Ville

Please, explain


Thanks

That's because they're the same station! Just look at Google maps if in doubt.
