Rodriquez, Garcia, Martinez, Oh My!

In yet another harbinger of the coming demographic transformation of America, the Census Bureau says that two Hispanic surnames — Garcia and Rodriguez — are among the top 10 most common in the nation, and Martinez is close behind.

The Hispanics population grew by 58 percent in the 1990s to nearly 13 percent of the total population and current estimates indicate that the population will increase by roughly 138 million between now and 2050 with 82% of that increase attributable to immigrants arriving after 2005 and their offspring.
