The names are in approximate alphabetical order by surname, but this is not strictly adhered to, since the names are laid out in two columns on each panel. It seems that the choice of names was dictated by the need to balance the number of letters in each row. Check more than one panel to ensure that a name is not missed, if it does not appear where it might be expected.
