* ''Film/ThorRagnarok'': Parodied when Surtur greets Thor by calling him "Thor, Son of Odin". In response, Thor calls him, "Surtur, Son of... A Bitch!" Later, when Thor is enslaved on Sakaar, he repeatedly tries to invoke his status as Son of Odin, but nobody there knows or cares who he is.

** Even the hobbits use patronymics once out of the Shire and past Bree-land. In Rivendell, Elrond introduces "Frodo son of Drogo" to the council, and later Frodo introduces himself to Faramir that way. At Isengard Merry introduces himself to Theoden as "Meriadoc, son of Saradoc," and Pippin takes oath in Gondor as "Peregrin son of Paladin."

** Violeta choosed Murasaki Fujita as her pseudonim, ''Murasaki'' being the translation of her name to japanese (and the nickname that her mother gave to her) and ''Fujita'' because Danae Fujita -a terrorist- was the supposed real identity of Dagmar Obscura, Violeta's mother. As she says to Sasuke ''I choosed Fujita as a way to tell those idiots that I will love my mother no matter whom she was''.
*** Yuga uses this trope with Violeta when he calls her ''Comrade Xingcun'', being Xingcun the last name of Violeta's biological father.

* In the ''Literature/DragonridersOfPern'' series, characters do not have surnames; instead, they tend to be given names which are an amalgamation of both parents' names. For example, Lord Jaxom was the son of Lord Fax and Lady Gemma. Lessa, in the first book, invokes the trope a bit more directly in response to F'lar implying she's a coward: ''I am the daughter of the Lord of Ruatha! I am afraid of '''nothing'''!''

* The Ogier in the ''[[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]]'' give the names of their forbears two generations back when introducing themselves; male Ogier give the names of their father and grandfather, while female ones give the names of their mother and grandmother. While listing two forebears might seem cumbersome, the Ogiers' [[LongLived longevity]] means that an Ogier's grandparents are likely to be acquainted to any other Ogier he or she meets.
** The Two rivers has a convention of using 'al' to mean 'son of', as in Rand al'Thor. However, it is only used in that manner in a flashback; by the time of the books it has devolved to an artifact, as there's no indication that Rand has any near relatives named Thor, more's the pity. [[spoiler: [[ObliviousAdoption Not that they would have been his relatives, regardless.]]]] The name causes him some trouble in the second book, as the same prefix is apparently used to denote royalty in the [[GrimUpNorth Borderlands.]]

* ''Literature/ArnTheKnightTemplar'' is set in medieval Scandinavia, so patronymics are all over the place. If further clarification is needed, the name of the family home is used, for example "Arn Magnusson of Arnäs", "Cecilia Algotsdotter of Ulvåsa".
** There is one significant example in Bengt Elinsson. After Svante Sniving, his abusive drunk of a father, killed his mother Elin in a drunken rage and was in turn killed by Elin's clansmen, Bengt chose to identify himself as his mother's son.

* Many family names in many languages actually come from such patronymics: Johnson or Ivanov (as in "John's Son" in both cases), for example.
** Which becomes entertaining when you meet a John Johnson Jr.
*** Or are told by a baby-names website that "Jackson" means "Son of Jack," and that "Jack" is "Short for Jackson."
*** Or, if you speak Russian, Ivan Ivanovich Ivanov (See below for Slavic naming conventions).
* Every Armenian surname translates to "Son of-" whatever the name may be.
* O'Brien comes from Ó Briain and means "Descendant of Brian." If you want an example of an Irish name that does follow the "son of..." pattern, try [=McMahon=] (Irish form Mac Mathuna).
** And then there's also the female forms, both married and unmarried. For an unmarried woman, it would change from Ó Dubhda, for example, to Ní Dhubhda, or from Mac Mathuna to Nic Mhathuna, meaning "daughter of the grandson/female descendant of Dubh" and "daughter of the son of the bear," respectively. And if she married into that name, it'd be Uí Dhubhda (wife of the grandson/descendant of Dubh) and Mhic Mhathuna (wife of the son of the bear), repectively.
* Most, if not all, Spanish surnames ending in '-ez' or '-az' come from patronymics: Sánchez (son of Sancho), Rodríguez (son of Rodrigo), Fernández (son of Fernando), Díaz (son of Diego), etcetera. El Cid, for instance, was Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, son of Diego Laínez and father of Diego Rodríguez.
** Exceptions are some Latin American surnames like Chávez and Cortez, that are actually derived from Spanish surnames Chaves (Medieval Spanish for "Keys") and Cortés ("Polite").
** The Portuguese equivalents end in '-es' and '-as'.
* Iceland is the only land in the western world where people commonly don't have surnames, with some few exceptions, mostly for foreigners. To tell each other apart, people add X, ''son of Y'' or ''daughter of Y'' ("-son" and "-dóttir," respectively) to their names. It's however not a surname and people address each other and are listed in phone books by their given names.
** And addressing someone by their patronym or matronym is culturally insensitive. The president should be called Ólafur, Ólafur Ragnar, or Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, never just Grímsson. The former president should be called Vigdís or Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, never just Finnbogadóttir.

* In Russia, {{patronymic}}s are still parts of names, like middle names in English.
** In fact, the polite way of addressing someone is in the form of "name patronymic" with the surname omitted (unless the person is being introduced, in which case it's either in the "name patronymic surname" format or as "surname name patronymic" which is what all official forms require).
** Unlike in Iceland, you can address a Russian by patronymic alone. But it's a highly familiar form of address, implying closeness, so if you call a barely-known Russian by patronymic alone, you'll be stared at.

** Modern Romanian has the patronymic ending '-escu'.

** Just to make this complicated though, this is reversed if someone is sick, then they are prayed for as the child of their mother.
** Originally, it was exclusively male, but after the Romans came through, that was ... not feasible.

** 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.
