Meaning:Youthful; Jove's child
With the addition of one letter, Julianna is a new name and a respelling of the more-familiar Juliana. For a while in the 1960s, changing “–ana” to “–anna” was a thing: For example, Adriana could also be spelled Adrianna, and Briana could morph into Brianna. Even though the double-“n” Julianna came into existence in 1965, it lagged behind its big sis; it still does. Julianna Margulies, who was “The Good Wife” for seven seasons, is the best-known bearer of the name.
