Garcia is my last name.
As per Frequently Occurring Surnames from Census 2000– a US Census Report released on 11/16/07- Garcia is the #8 surname in the United States; Rodriguez is #9.
For the first time ever, two Hispanic surnames are among the top 10 in the nation. Demographers say that it might be the first time that a non-Anglo name was amonth the 10 most common in the nation. Cracking the list means how strong the Latino migration has gotten into everyday American culture (NY Times 11/17/07). The numbers have elevated Hispanics among the standard American names. The reality of our nation is that Hispanics living in the USA account for almost 13 percent of the total population and the new list of top 10 names shows it.
