Shakespearean Play Characters

"What's in a name?
That which we call a rose
By any other name
Would smell as sweet"

                  (Romeo and Juliet)

You can turn to Shakespearean names for inspiration when choosing a name for your baby. The most famous Shakespearean name, Romeo, has become nearly synonymous with "lover". Romeo, in "Romeo and Juliet," does indeed experience a love of such purity and passion that he kills himself when he believes that the object of his love, Juliet, has died.

Many celebrities have turned to Shakespearean names for inspiration when choosing a name for their baby; the Beckhams for example have named their youngest son Romeo.

The most memorable characters in a few of Shakespeare's works are presented here. Some Shakespearean names are truly beautiful as you will see from the following list.
