The demographic transformation of the U.S. is partially reflected in lists of the most common surnames.

In the 1990 census, all of the fifteen most common American  surnames  were English surnames: Smith, Johnson, Williams, Jones, Brown, Davis, Miller, Wilson, Moore, Taylor, Anderson, Thomas, Jackson, White, Harris.

In the 2000 census, there were four Spanish surnames in the Top Fifteen  list.  In the 2010 census there were six Spanish surnames in the list: Garcia, Rodriguez, Martinez, Hernandez, Lopez and Gonzalez.

The top five surnames in the 2010 list are still English surnames: Smith, Johnson, Williams, Brown and Jones.
