In Python, the capitalize() method returns a copy of the original string and converts the first character of the string to a capital (uppercase) letter while making all other characters in the string lowercase letters.
 

Syntax: 

string_name.capitalize() 

string_name: It is the name of string of
             whose first character we want
             to capitalize.

Parameter: The capitalize() function does not takes any parameter. 
Return value: The capitalize() function returns a string with the first character in the capital. 
Below is the python program to illustrate capitalize() function: 
 

Python




# Python program to demonstrate the
# use of capitalize() function
 
# capitalize() first letter of string
# and make other letters lowercase
name = "geeks FOR geeks"
 
print(name.capitalize())
 
# demonstration of individual words
# capitalization to generate camel case
name1 = "geeks"
name2 = "for"
name3 = "geeks"
print(name1.capitalize() + name2.capitalize()
                         + name3.capitalize())

Output:
