I received an email from Oh, The Joys asking me just what the heck my screen name means.
She found my explanation interesting and suggested I post it on here. So, as the ever dutiful person that I tend to be, here goes nothing.
First, let's break it down - Ntycn & Boricua
Ntycn stands for the word enticing
Boricua is another word for being Puerto Rican and can probably be best explained by Wikipedia
Boricua a word of origin from Boriken (or Boriquén, Borinquen, or Borinquén) used by the original Taino Indian population to refer to Puerto Rico before the coming of the Spanish, which translated as "The Valiant People of the Sacred House". The word has come to identify any resident or descendent of Puerto Rico, who will use the term, "¡Yo soy Boricua!" ("I am Boricua") to identify themselves.
My now-husband, then-boyfriend created the screen name for me about 6 or 7 years ago and I've been using it ever since. It's just kind of stuck.
Well, there you go folks. That is the short and sweet explanation to solve the mystery. Enjoy.
