Russian names generally consist of three names. A given name, a patronymic name and a family name. A patronymic name is based on the name of one's father, grandfather, or earlier male ancestor. Russian male patronymic names are formed by adding the suffex -evich or -ovich, female patronymic names by adding the suffex -ovna or -evna. For example, in the name Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin, Boris is the given name, Nikolayevich the patronymic (his father's name is Nikolay) and Yeltsin is the family name.
