    I’m actually doing ours differently from all these options. I’m going to start each table with the last name alphabetically, and then go around the table counter-clockwise with the names. So it might go something like this:

    John Doe

    Jane Dow

    Tom Smith

    Tammy Smith

    Robert Robinson

    Roberta Thomson

    etc.

    I think it’d be too much trouble if you don’t just separate them – if you leave them together and do it by whose surname comes alphabetically, people might not figure that out and have a harder time finding their name. But if you put the guys name first then *someone* is going to be offended…
