I have another Finnish question, more about naming traditions than translation. I have a female relative who's patronymic name seems to come from her father's father, not her own father.

Greta's father is Johan Clemsson. Her name is Greta Clems... Can this happen? I have not seen the original document, so maybe it's a transcription error?
