How Do You Alphabetize a Hyphenated Name?

Answer

In a situation like this what you have to do is treat the entire hyphenated name as one entity to reduce confusion. Next, you need to alphabetize the entire name as if the name were just one single name. Hyphens do really bring a lot of confusion while alphabetizing so treat the compound unit as one single name. Just ignore the hyphen. You can also choose to alphabetize the entire name or according to the first element. Ask for assistance when you have reached a point where you dont know how to proceed anymore.
