Why does Samasung Contacts search not sort by name first


AC Question

If I search for Melanie, by typing mel in the search box. The list comes up with names that have an address of Melbourne and at the bottom of a long list I find Melanie.
Why is that?
Can I change the setting to sort by first name ?

Contacts... Tap the three dots in top right corner... Settings... Sort by.... There you have the option to display first name, last name etc...
