Stable orbits

Planets orbit stars. Moon orbit planets. Stars orbit galaxies.

Is there a stable orbit that an object could have around the moon?
As a generalisation of this, is there a stable orbit around any moon of any planet? And under what conditions?

For bonus points. Could such a system form naturally?

No, I don't know the answer, i'm asking the question.
