in reply to Module to intelligently handle names with two last names and other best practices?

OK, so according the Chicago Manual of Style, double names without hyphens should be sorted on the very last part of the name:

"In the absence of a hyphen, alphabetize by the final name. Since itís usually not possible to know for certain the origin of the name in the middle, it is treated as a middle name (not a surname) by default. Not observing this simple rule would lead to chaos: Chantelle Rutherford Smith would be listed in some directories under Rutherford and others under Smith, even if Rutherford is a middle name she was given at birth. (Note that Spanish names have their own rules; please see CMOS 16.84.)"
