English translation:"El Fotro"
Explanation:
It's a nickname and as such I would handle it as such and leave "El Fotro" between quotation marks.

One could try to look up the origins of the "El Fotro" nickname, but even then I would still use "El Fotro" instead of trying to translate it, since it's clearly something very regional and adds to the local color of the text.

Hey, you could also send an email to the blogs author antoniomartinurrea@hotmail.com asking him if he knows the origin of the nickname and evaluate if it would make sense to add the explanation in a note.
