I have 100 names set up like this:

 

First Name Last Name * First Name Last Name * First Name Last Name * First Name Last Name * (etc.) 

 

I have set my text boxes to justify left and right. 

Is there a way to set rules, e.g. to avoid "*" at the start of a line?

I'd try a GREP style that finds [any word][space]asterisk - \w * and applies a No Break Character Style. Might work.

Your question is not very clear, can you share a screen shot? Are you using different Paragraph Styles?

Mockup attached. I want "*" to never appear as the first letter on a line, instead I want it to appear as the last letter on the previous line if nessesary. Is there any work around this problem, other than manually going through the text?

Do a find/change for the * and change it to a non-breaking space followed by the *.
