It means "place where old New Yorkers go to retire".

Literally, it means "Mouth of the mouse".  It was nautical jargon for an craggy inlet, that would gnaw at a ship's hull as a gigantic mouse might.  The actual Boca Raton was located in Bisqayne Bay, but 19th century mapmakers mistakenly placed it farther north.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

It means:  'mouth of the rat'  (horrible, sorry)
