What does Ertxiem stand for?

Well, on second examination, it appears to be used for masters of something, whether they be coaches or professors or persons of internet fame, and given your comment earlier, I think that's my final guess, however wrong it may be (that is, without further information, I cannot make a better guess):

Ertxiem is "Meixtre" backwards, which is a Portuguese-language nickname given to those who are masters of something (perhaps in your case, mathematics and physics?), as it sounds somewhat like "mestre".


[spoiler=the answer]
Yup. That's about right. When I completed my MSc in Maths, my friends started to call me 'meixtre'. They said 'meixtre instead of 'mestre' because at that time there was a humor TV show where one of the characters used to say that.
