What does Juliet mean when she says, "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet?"
Juliet is expressing frustration, unaware that Romeo is listening just below. She is pondering the fact that names are nothing more than words. If Romeo was not a Montague, she would be allowed to date him. However, that one word "Montague" seemingly prevents this. Juliet points out that if you changed his last name, he would still be the same person. For example, if you RENAMED a rose and began to call it trash, it would still remain the same sweet smelling rose. Thus, the name in and of itself is meaningless.
