What does the N stand for in the keyboard shortcut for Chrome’s Incognito mode?

Problem :

The shortcut for Chrome’s Incognito mode is Control + Shift + N. Why an “N”?

I know in Firefox, it’s Control + Shift + P and the P stands for “Private” (browsing).

Solution :

Ctrl + N is New Window.

Ctrl + Shift + N is New Incognito Window.

They’ve used the same, well known shortcut for New Window and added Shift to allow it to do something slightly different.
