According to the book "Streetwise Chicago:A History of Chicago Street Names" by Don Hayner and Tom McNamee (published in 1988), Paulina Street was named by real estate developer Reuben Taylor in honor of his wife Paulina Taylor.

AnswerThe pronunciation of the "i" in Paulina Street is long, as in the word "eye" and thus is pronounced differently from the standard pronunciation of Pauline, which of course is pronounced as a long "e."

Reuben and Paulina Tayler's name is spelled with an "e", not an "o". Confirm at Rosehill Cemetery in Chicago. Gerrit Dangremond, descendant.

Named after William Henry Harrison, the 9th president of the US. In regards to the follow-up question: "Is there a definitive listing of the origins of Chicago street names?" The now out of print book - which should be available at public libraries - "Streetwise Chicago: A History of Chicago Names" (published 1988) by Don Hayner and Tom McNamee, is perhaps the one and only book currently available on Chicago street names. It may not be totally "definitive" but it does have some valuable information on street numbering and name changes.
