Can we have more than 100 profiles in the SURNAME genealogy search?

The changes to include name variants are great, but since they have been introduced I am finding it annoying when searching for some profiles, with lots of possible name variants, especially when I am sure of the name.  When limiting it to say 'John Ward" I get a whole page of most people not named Ward (maybe 50%).  Could there be a way to show a larger page list, or perhaps limit the search to be 'exact' or something similar?

Thanks Mikey.  Silly me. I hadn't noticed that before.  I usually search via the name fields at the top of the page.  Those options appear after the list of names when you go in that way, so not easy to spot.  Using the Find/Search option they are much more visible!
