Best Answer

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.
