Well, it depends on what your "uucp" account is used for.

On some systems, "uucp" has a login shell, and the sites that
expect to get a uucico use "nuucp" or their sitename or something.

On uunet, "uucp" gets you /bin/sh, while your sitename gets
you uucico.

It all depends on how you set things up.
