      Description

      For groups of people with the same surname, e.g., "Alice & Bob Smith", should the sort name be "Smith, Alice & Bob" or "Smith, Alice & Smith, Bob"? I've seen both styles in the database, and edits changing it in both directions, and the style guide doesn't seem to say anything one way or the other. Here's an example edit: https://musicbrainz.org/edit/41515407.
