When to use the "Personal a" with multiple people

Hello Inma, I don't think you understood my question earlier.  

I was wondering why there isn't the "personal a" before each name in the example. There is only one a in the example with 2 names. Why isn't there 2 personal a, before each name? In all your examples, the sentences only have one person in each of your examples. I know I've seen before an A before each person/pet when there are 2 or more in a sentence.

Why is it "a Paula y Cristina" and not "a Paula y a Cristina" ?
