DH has long loed the idea of using the surname Garcia as a fn (we do have a family friend by that name, but I suspect that the real reason is that he thinks it sounds cool with our last name).

I've been looking to find some info on it, and on a few name sites I've seen it referred to as meaning "mighty with a spear" or some such. I suspect this is hooey, and I see that its listed here of indeterminate origins. Can anyone confirm the total hooeyness of "mighty with a spear" or have any other info on the name?
