Reply to: Ilyich by Me
Famous people with the patronymic name Ilyich:
Lenin - Vladimir Ilyich
Mechnikov - Ilya Ilyich (A famous biologist from 19th century)
Brezhnev - Leonid Ilyich
Tsaikovsky - Pyotr Ilyich

(There was a joke about Brezhnev: He says on a 1. may party to his friends: "Yes, I understood that you would like me to be a czar - It is a nice idea, but I have a question - should I be called Leonid I or Ilyich II?)

The feminine form is Ilyinychna
