this is from a wikipedia.org article: "Puerto Rico."

Puerto Ricans often call the island Borinquen, from Borikén, its indigenous Taíno name.[3][4] The terms boricua and borincano derive from Borikén and Borinquen respectively, and are commonly used to identify someone of Puerto Rican heritage. The island is also popularly known as "La Isla del Encanto", which translated means "The Island of Enchantment."
