Juniata Street appears in the 1852 map of R. E. McGowin and the 1862 map of S. N. and F. W. Beers.[1][2]

Juniata is the name of several places in central Pennsylvania, including the Juniata River and Juniata County. According to William Bright, the name of Juniata County comes from the Seneca name Tyunayate, meaning "projecting rock."[3] Annie Clark Miller includes "Juanita" in a list of street names of Native American origin;[4] presumably this is an error for Juniata.
