In biblatex/biber you could setup the entries like this:

 author={von Goethe, Johann Wolfgang},

 author={van Halen, Edward},
 options = {useprefix=true}

Then you get "Goethe" and "van Halen". 

(It is not a perfect solution: assume a book from Goethe and van
Halen then you would have to use braces to save the "van":
author={von Goethe, Johann Wolfgang and {van Halen}, Edward},
