    Yes, this happens often, when mother gives her child patronymic after her own father/grandpa, if she doesn't like real child father's name...

    FYI, our daughter was born this week in 4 роддом in Moscow. You can apply for a birth certificate while you're in the hospital. МФЦ employees come everyday and do the paperwork. They needed a translation of my passport and our marriage certificate since it's from Canada. They made copies of everything and I filled out their form and the next day they brought the birth certificate! There was no problem not including a patronymic. They didn't even ask why. There's just a dash on the birth certificate to indicate that she doesn't have one.

    Congratulations!
    My second daughter, born here, got her patronymic automatically (my name is an old traditional name that exists in Russian), and we gave it to our older daughter born in the US. But they also have normal American middle names, after my grandmothers. They can use both, either, and choose which is more convenient.
