This is a quick guess.  Could be completely wrong.

My guess is that Entriken is of Swedish origin. Using the translation 
dictionary at
http://www-lexikon.nada.kth.se/skolverket/swe-eng.shtml  We find the 
following possible sources.  From this quick check one might guess the word 
could mean any of the following.

a trick, about trick, or one trick
a tricot, about tricot, or one  tricot
a twilled cloth, about twilled cloth, or one twilled cloth
a knitted fabric, about knitted fabric, or one knitted fabric
a country, a state, or a land

SWEDISH WORD                             | ENGLISH TRANSLATION
en [en:] adv.                            | about
en [en:] ett indefinite article          | a, an
en [en:] ens pron.                       | one
en [en:] ett numeral                     | one
en [e:n] enen enar noun                  | juniper
trick [trik:] tricket trick tricken noun | trick
trikå [trik'å:] trikån trikåer noun      | tricot
rike [²r'i:ke] riket riken rikena noun   | country, state

 From http://www.yourdictionary.com/ we have that tricot means:
Pronunciation: 'trE-(")kO, 'trI-k&t
Function: noun
Etymology: French, from tricoter to knit, from Middle French, to agitate, 
hop, ultimately from Old French estriquier to stroke, of Germanic origin; 
akin to Old English strIcan to stroke -- more at STRIKE
Date: 1872

1 : a plain warp-knitted fabric (as of nylon, wool, rayon, silk, or cotton) 
with a close inelastic knit and used especially in clothing (as underwear)
