It is normally found in medieval records in the Latin form Garsea, and may well be of pre-Roman origin, perhaps akin to Basque (h)artz ‘bear’. This is the most common surname in Spain and also one of the most common surnames elsewhere in Spanish-speaking world. In the US, where it is also found among Native Americans (mainly Pueblos in NM), it is the sixth most frequent surname. Compare De Garcia .
