* [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Orcs]] in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series commonly use In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', traditional [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orc]] names follow this structure with the patronymic prefixes gro- (for males) "gro" and prefix gra- (for females). So Agronak "gra" meaning "son of" and "daughter of", respectively; when referring to a parent, a male orc will use his father's name as his last name, and a female will use her mother's. However it's not uncommon for them to use their place of birth as a last name in place of a parent's. So, for example, an Orc named Agron gro-Malog is Agronak "Agron, the son of Malog.Malog"

** Klingon females always introduce himself as "daughter of <father's name>", never "daughter of <mother's name>", implying that male heritage is more important (same as human patronymics).

** Klingon females always introduce himself as "daughter of <father's name>", never "daughter of <mother's name>", implying that male heritage is more important (same as human patronymics). An exception is [[Series/StarTrekVoyager B'Elanna Torres]], who sometimes refers to herself among Klingons as "B'Elanna, daughter of Miral", referring to her mother. This is probably because her father, John Torres, is human, and his name wouldn't mean anything to Klingons.

* Ancient Wales had both patronymic and matronymic naming conventions. Men were ''ap'' their father's names; for instance, the last native Prince of Wales was Llywelyn ap Gruffydd - Llywelyn son of Gruffydd. Women were ''merch'' or ''ferch'' their parents' names; building on the previous example, Llywelyn's only child was Gwenllian ferch Llywelyn.
