Why not name the CompoundKey by its DomainName i.e. Name. And indexing persons to FirstName, LastName is just one view on a PeopleList. That generic List for people could have different projections for different views (indices) that use their own indexing. e.g. something like this (just typed in here not thrown at a compiler)

class People {
   private final Collection<Person> people=new ArrayList<Person>();
   public People(Collection<Person> people) {
   public <T extends Projection> SortedMap<T,Person> projectTo(T index) {
      SortedMap<T,Person> projection=new TreeMap<T,Person>();
      for (Person person : people) {
           projection.put(index.from(person), person);
      return projection;
