When you group on a field, Crystal automatically uses that field for a sort.

You could group on the NAME then group on the ID to take care of duplicate names.

Another way that would work is to add a summary on the name field.
I assume the ID has only 1 name.
Right click the NAME field
Click INSERT --> SUMMARY
Choose MAXIMUM
Put the summary in the group footer
Click OK
Drag the summary to the group header
Click REPORT --> GROUP SORT EXPERT
In the FOR THIS GROUP SORT set the dropdown to ALL
Select the MAXIMUM summary from the other block
