# Cite paper with 2 authors with the same surname as “Surname and Surname”, not “A. Surname and B. Surname” [duplicate]

I am writing a document where I need to cite a paper by two authors who share a surname (they are, in fact, married). Biblatex is currently introducing their initials in the citation, but astronomy convention is to just cite their surnames.

My MWE illustrates the issue. I need to maintain their initials in the bibliography, but cite them as "Strom and Strom (1994)" in the body of the text. Is there a simple way to do this?

\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{Strom1994,
author =  {{Strom}, K.~A. and {Strom}, S.~E.},
title =   {Astro Paper},
journal =   {A\&A},
year =    {1994},
}

\end{filecontents}
\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[style=authoryear,backend=biber,uniquelist=false]{biblatex}

• Have you tried the astron.bst Astronomy BibTeX file? It might be on your system (in mine it is in /usr/local/texlive/2019/texm-dist/bibtex/bst/beebe/astron.bst). It is one of an extensive collection of BiBTeX style files gathered by Nelson Beebe. I have not tried it. – Peter Wilson Oct 30 '19 at 18:18
• You need the option uniquename=false, see tex.stackexchange.com/q/134535/35864. – moewe Oct 31 '19 at 7:01
