You can restrict searches to only user pages, like so:

This will turn up false positives for common names, though.

It's possible to change the sorting of names, either by adding categories
[[Category:Users with last names starting with G]]
or with a 'magic word'
{{DEFAULTSORT:Greathouse IV, Charles R}}

If there's interest, we could build this into the user registration
page and have someone or some script change add this to existing
