For men:
-ovich added to the father's first name if it (father's first name) ends in a consonant
-evich added to the father's first name if it ends in a vowel

i.e. Feodor's son would be Feodorovich, Evgeni's son would be Evgenievich

For women
-ovna added to the father's first name if it (father's first name) ends in a consonant
-evna added to the father's first name if it ends in a vowel

i.e. Feodorovna, but Evgenievna
