Salutation like contact name with prefixes Mr., Mr.s. I have googled but didn't get the solution.enter image description here

  • Why can't you create a formula field using the standard Salutation field and the contact name fields? – David Cheng Dec 10 '17 at 16:19

There are many fields on native objects which you want to create on custom object but Salesforce doesn't allow to do so. Like Salutation, Compound Address field etc.

So the best in this case you can do is create a custom picklist field to get value from user and then create a formula field to display the result on UI. Or if you really want this then you need to override the edit page and need to replace it with custom page.
