Does anyone here have a patronymic?

Recommended Posts

Does someone here have a patronymic, especially whose who applied for AU citizenship recently? Thanks!

I'm curious why you are asking?   A lot of Australians have a middle name of some kind, so I don't see why a patronymic would pose any problems.

It is a pretty specific part of a name which is not the same as a second name.

It does not appear on a passport, for example, but in common use in all documents and IDs  inside Russia and post-USSR countries so is it not clear how to deal with it in the AU citizenship application.

I studied Russian at school so I know what a patronymic is.   On most documents in the English-speaking world, if you wish to use your patronymic, you would type it into the "Middle Name" section on the form.   The difference between a middle name and a patronymic is irrelevant in most practical situations in an English-speaking country.  

For citizenship, to avoid confusion, your application should match your existing visa.

There's a specific slot in the application for this: "Has the applicant ever been known by or used any other names, dates of birth or gender? Other names include alternative spellings, patronymic names, maiden names, clan or tribal names?"
