Default Where does "tico" come from?

Does anyone know, where the name / nickname "Tico" comes from? All I know is that it's a nickname for Costa Ricans. But Tico Torres has Cuban origins...so I was wondering if anyone here knows why Hector Torres became "Tico".

Thanks

Because Tico is a cooler name than Hector?

I named my camcorder Tico

From what I've heard, his nickname was Hectorico, which over time just became Tico.

Tico is short for Hector like Richie is short for Richard.
