Name your people picker control e.g. person, create a calculated value control with formula person:

person + ' ' + userProfileLookup(person, 'FirstName') + ' ' + userProfileLookup(person, 'LastName')

Form looks like:

For a list of properties for userProfileLookup see Default user profile property mappings in SharePoint Server 2013

Hi Omer, 
Once you have named the control as Manfred says above, You could also try using Runtime Controls of "lookup" and "parseLookup" to create a calculated value in a formula?  This way you can reference other columns.....

lookup and parseLookup are GREAT controls......  Very useful.
