Aloud Juliet speaks to herself and says, "Tis but thy name that is my enemy, thou art thyself though, not a Montegue. What's a Montegue? Is it nor hand nor foot nor arm nor face nor any other part belonging to a man. Oh be some other name. What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. So Romeo would, were he not Romeo called. Retain that dear perfection which he owes without that title? Romeo doth thy name. And for that name which is no part of thee take all myself." Basically she is saying that a name shouldn't be who you are. A simple name shouldn't drive her and her love apart. Metaphorically she refers to a rose, a rose could be called anything, but it would still smell the same. So If Romeo were not a Montegue, he would still be Romeo.
