grep --fake-filename=$fn -H pattern
is simpler (easier to read) then
grep -H pattern | sed 's,(стандартный ввод)',$fn,
                          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ is Russian for "standart input" :-)

Maybe you are right, I forget about sed :-)

BTW I don't understand, for what purposes option --recursive presents
in grep, it is less handy option, then --fake-filename=, because I can
find * -type f | xargs grep -H ...
and in this case I also can specify filename pattern...
