The prestigious surname Rodriquez originated in Spain, a country which has figured prominently in world affairs for hundreds of years. The name is patronymic in origin, deriving from the name of the father of the initial bearer, and its roots can be traced back to the Visigoths, the Germanic tribe who ruled Spain between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. Rodriquez is derived from the Germanic personal name "Hrodric," which is composed of the elements "hrod," meaning "renown," and "ric," meaning "power." Thus, the name Rodriquez combines this personal name with the patronymic suffix "-ez," and refers to "a famous ruler."

Rodriquez Early Origins



The surname Rodriquez was first found in Castile, where the name originated in Visigothic times.
