Re: Mothers Patronymic #general

If the mother had a family name that looked like a
patronymic, and the child was 'illegitimate' according
to the government (because the parents only married
religiously, not civilly), then the child would be
given the mother's family name. I think this is more
likely than taking what really was his mother's
patronymic.
