You've already got "use full text search" advice which might work well for your case, I would just ecplain what is happening in this case.

The problem is you're having like "const%" on both surname and name. In such case even though you have index on (name,surname) MySQL will only be able to use prefix of the first key, as second key part only can be used if
"=" is used for first key part at this point.

First idea would be to use have (surname) index instead which is normally more sellective.
