I am using iso-authoryear which formats multiple authors like

GASCH, Robert, TWELE, Jochen, 2005.

What I need, is to format all but the first author with the first name followed by the last name. That would be

GASCH, Robert, Jochen TWELE, 2005.

I already tried \DeclareNameAlias{sortname}{last-first/first-last} which didn't show any effect....

I am stuck on this for days, any help would be appreciated!

biblatex-iso690 does not use the sortname format to format the primary name/labelname/sort name. That means you have to redefine the three name formats author, editor and translator separately


\usepackage[style=iso-authoryear, backend=biber]{biblatex}
