System > Configuration > Catalog

settings are not enough to sort the catalog search results. You need to add this in your theme layout override xml file (probably local.xml)

    <reference name="search_result_list">
        <action method="setDefaultDirection"><param>asc</param></action>
        <action method="setSortBy"><param>name</param></action>
