Juliana, interviewed by Matt Wardlaw for Cleveland Scene, on the origin of The Juliana Hatfield Three name:

It’s kind of a terrible name, I think I was just trying to make a play on jazz or something kind of old time like that, a jazzy kind of name. I guess I was maybe trying to be funny, you know? But it was a way of establishing that yes, this is a band, but yes, I am the leader and yes, I am the front person. It kind of gave me an out once I wanted to break up the band.
