Russian patronymic for bastards

I have a Russian character (born in about 1910) whose mother doesn't know his father's name. How would he do his patronymic? Would he have his mother's name instead, or is there some sort of default name for when the father's name is unknown, or would he simply not have a patronymic?

Thanks.
