Sometimes in Sage you need two \ marks. Try this:

```
e = var('e', latex_name='\\varepsilon')
show(e)
```

I thought it had to do with whether you had a raw text string or not. That doesn't seem to be the case here. Hopefully someone can fill in the details as to why we need two \ marks here and how we know that 2 are needed.
