Meaning: a name derived from the name of a father or ancestor

A name formed on the father’s name, like Johnson (son of John), Martinson, Aaronson, etc. The word combines pater, piztris with Greek onyma, name.

Onyma plus the Greek prefix syn-, with or together, forms synonym, a word of the same name (or meaning), etymologically “a together name.” Onyma plus the prefix antiagainst, forms antonym, a word of opposite meaning, etymologically “an against name.” Onyma plus Greek homos, the same, forms homonym, a word that sounds like another but has a different meaning and spelling, like barebear, way-weigh, to-too-two, etc., etymologically “a same name.” A homonym is more accurately· called a homophone, a combination of homos, the same, and phone, sound.

The race of Somerled continued to rule the islands, and from a younger son of the same potentate sprang the lords of Lorne, who took the patronymic of Macdougall.

The king will not acknowledge the paternity of his mistress’s son.
