Just Anna Davidovna. Leave your surname as Gibson. Alternatively, you could choose a Russian surname. For example, I'm Simonetta Semyonovna, or Olga Rodionovna.

Sooo my name in Russian is Margarita. My dad's name is Mark, so what would my middle name be? And my last name, Patterson, what would that be?

Lena is a diminutive of Yelena, not a name in itself.

My grandparents came from Russia and I am named after my grandmother, Barbara Ann. Is this spelled correctly? My father used a different pronunciation.

Thanks,
Annie

or the patryonimic??


The first name of David is not common among Russians. It is a more common name among the Georgians and a very common name among the Armenians. It is sometimes used by Jews living in Russia.

The children of a David would have the patronymic of Davidovich or in the case of a woman Davidova. Jokingly my Russian friends used to call me David Davidovich Davidov. Maybe this was because I had them take me to the tomb of War of 1812 General Dennis Davidov a few times.

I don't think the name Lynne translates into Russian.  At least not in any of the name dictionaries I've consulted.

Does anything even come close?

I guess you could go for Elena, which often has the nickname Lena, similar in sound to Lynne.


Earlier, GD Marishka Russified her name and had Leoaevna as a patronym. Not a bad guess. The Russian for Leo is Lev, so Levovna would be better. If you wanted to keep the English style then maybe Leovna would be worth a go!
