Explanation:
"Cachaito" is in fact a diminutive for the nickname "Cachao" (and I do not know whether that is a familiar form for another name, or just Orlando's nickname)

My guess is Orlando\'s nickname is Cachaito because his uncle\'s (Israel López) nickname was Cachao.

ORIGIN OF NICKNAME:

When asked to tell how he began to be called \"Cachao\", Israel explained that \"Cachao\" is really his second surname. It is an Andalusian surname, but he has always used it as a nickname perhaps derived from cachondeo ( always joking, having a good time). In any case, in Cuba it was easier to say Cachao than \"Israel.\" Cachao\'s brother, Orestes, had a nickname also. He was known as \"Macho.\"
