Is there a way to remove articles like "A/The/An" from alphabetic sort?

I am using the layout theme Expanse and was wondering if there is a way to customize the alphabetic sort to prevent titles from sorting by articles (A/The/An)?

 

I don't want to move the articles to the end of the title after a comma in case people are actually looking for the title with The at the beginning and because it looks bad but it is frustrating that all titles beginning with The are sorted as such.

Can you add a link to your website so I can see what you're talking about? Thank you.

As you can see the first products title start with A so they come first. And as you move through anything beginning with The is towards the end.

I see. So are you looking to only remove articles starting with "A/The/An" from alphabetic sort, or do you want to disable alphabetic sort completely from your store?

I'd like to removed them from the sort so the title "An Informed Faith" comes up under I rather than A. I want to keep the sort function on the site; just like to improve it.
