One of the problems that the original poster may have encountered is not a search engine problem but an indexing problem.

For databases that are keyword indexed, rather than by forename/surname, when the user asks for 'exact' forename/surname, the search engine algorithm can only interpret the request as for forename and surname on *same page*. For some databases (say, California Voters Registrations), using the keyword field (where it exists) with surname/forename or forename/surname in quotes sometimes retrieves a desired record where the name fields are nearly useless.

Fixing this requires fixing underlying indexing.
