There are nacho chips.
― Anonymous User  4/17/2005
The food was named for the man who invented it, Ignacio "Nacho" Anaya. He worked in a restaurant, and some people came in while the chef was gone, so he just threw together what he could find in the kitchen -- some fried tortillas, cheese and peppers. It was used as a name long before the food, which wasn't invented until the 1940s.

A movie known as "Nacho Libre" has this name, as you may see "NACHO Libre" has the name Nacho there. Jack Black is the main character of the movie, he plays a Wrestler in this film.

Nacho Martinez was a Spanish actor. (He appears in Pedro Almodovar's film "Matador.")

Although Spanish is the language of Mexico, it seems more Mexican than Spanish.

Nachos are yummy! I like them with lots of cheese and salsa.

LOL what a pet name for "Ignacio".

Yes, and I'll name the next child Pizza, soon followed by Chili Cheese Fries.

That pizza comment didn't seem right. When I hear Nacho as a name, I think of a Spanish person who is fun-loving. No, I don't know any people named Nacho, but at least I know that it is a name. I do love nachos, though.

This is a great name. For a dog.

This is a rather funny name to me. At first, I was surprised it was actually a name. But then it grew on me really quickly. Now I imagine a humorous, energetic person with a different mindset than the rest of us and a unique way of seeing things.

Bwahahaha! This name would be pure hell to have in the US!

Since this is a type of chips, I'd feel sorry for anyone who has this name.

It might be nice in a Spanish speaking country but not in America.

One of my favorite, stupid movies ever: Nacho Libre. Ignacio (Jack Black) is a wrestler in Mexico who tries to raise money for an orphanage.

It makes everyone sound like cannibals.

A terrible name to have in the US.

Nachos are chips, as you probably know.

What do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you?

Nacho cheese!

(I didn't make it up.)

I like this name for a pet.

Nacho is a great name for a chihuahua. For a human outside of Hispanic cultures, not so much. You'd be called Nacho Cheese and Nacho Chips your whole life.

I know a Spanish Nacho, and I don't think about it that much. I speak Spanish, though I don't live in Spain, and I know it's short for Ignacio...
SimoneKadele  5/5/2015
The nickname doesn't have anything to do with the food, seeing as the name Ignacio was used in Spain long before the Mexican dish was created. The whole world isn't the US. Or Mexico, for that matter.

And regarding the origin of the nickname, I don't think there's an official explanation, but it could be because of the Italian pronunciation of Ignacio.
