From germanic Visigoth origin, into france and then later spain. It means son of roderick a Visigoth hero and meaning famous, power. It is derived from the french Rodriguez, later ez added on to signify jewish root with ez thus we get the name rodriguez most names with ez or iz was added during napoleans reign to register the cultures together and jews could conceal thier family names thus confusing and erasing thier family origins but still able to remember who they are as opposed to the native spain and portuguese, and is a name with much history and truely is a famous power especially in the united states,
