Sorting nested lists with strings


I've a nested list of this kind:
list={{"Paul",23},{"Amanda",55},{"Carl",32},...}
Suppose I want to perform an alphabetic sort on the first element. Which is 
the condition I've to write in Sort[list,...]?
Actually Sort[list] automatically operates on the second element.
Thanks.
