"youthful or sky father"

Juliana Origin and Meaning

The name Juliana is girl's name of Latin origin meaning "youthful or sky father".
Long common in Europe, the elegant and regal Juliana, also spelled with two n's, has invaded these shores, in tandem with the more classic Julia. Together with Julian, the name derives from Julius, a Roman family name. Its origin is shrouded in history, but possible roots include Latin iuvenis, meaning "youthfu"; Greek ioulos, meaning "downy-bearded"; or Jovis, a form of Jupiter, which means "sky father".

There were several early Saint Julianas and Queen Juliana was the long-reigning monarch of The Netherlands. Julianna Margulies has given that spelling of the name a substantial push.

Juliana has been on the Top 1000 since 1881.
