Lover not a fighter

Romeo's quotation

O sweet Juliet,

Thy beauty hath made me effeminate

And in my temper soften'd valour's steel!

What's in a name?

Romeo falls in and out of love with about every girl he meets. He prefers to daydream about his latest romance instead of feuding with the Capulets or fighting rivals. When he falls for Juliet he wonders if his love has made him soft and 'girlie'. To this day, a young man with a romantic nature is known as a 'Romeo'.
