Do I know what it means?
Well, yes and no.
I now know much more than I did, thanks to the Wikipedia entry on Djinn But my answer was thus:
'Djinn' as a canting* play on my name, and for the watered down story versions - parallel to those of the the european Fae - of the Djinn that I read as a child. I realize that, like the Fae, the Djinn carry much more power than most folks realize, but that was not my intent in picking up the name.
*Canting as I mean it explained here.
I'm not claiming to be some kind of 'genie in a bottle' with all the answers to any garden question, although I'd love to have more knowledge, and I don't mind sharing what I do know.
Now you know.
