why was Che Guevara called "El Chancho"?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
He wore a "weekly shirt" as a kid and didn't like to bathe in the cold water of the time (his home didn't have a water heater) as the cold water severly bothered his asthma.Source(s): Jon Lee Anderson's - 'Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life' = a Great Book !

It was his nickname when he was a kid. He disdained bathing and changing his cloths. Apparently he was proud of that nickname.
