Reyna Means 'Queen' In Spanish

So, as I have recently been playing through Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands (not the greatest or most original game, but I’ve been really enjoying it, even if only for exploring the rich, lush, varied, gorgeous Bolivian landscapes of the game), I have found myself using google translate for a lot of the Spanish dialogue you encounter in the game.

There is one radio broadcast where the DJ (a really funny guy, actually one of the stronger components of the game) talks about how he and his homeboys all have their “reyna’s” name tattooed on various body parts.

So…uh…yeah.

Just a neat little tidbit!

@gunzerkus “reina” apparently means “try” in Icelandic.

Yep. I had a dog named Reyna for 14 years, who passed away a couple years ago. Adopted her as a puppy from a spanish family.

Reina = Queen, Reyna is probably a play on words maybe.

Oh, so “Reina” is the correct spelling?

Fun facts:

I have a friend that can read and speak the Spanish he is reading without knowing what it means. I can do the same with written Japanese.

Oh and I can say the alphabet backwards. In like 5 seconds

Sorry, I found your post a bit confusingly worded.

Does your friend know Spanish?

Do you know Japanese?

Ah that’s my bad.

No. Neither of us know it beyond a few words here and there. We just know how to pronounce the words we see written
