Meaning:youthful or Jove's child
Shakespeare wrote compelling plays that still feel modern, but they also included new names, which is how Juliet came about (for, duh, “Romeo and Juliet”). But it was easy—by dropping the “–te” from Juliette, he de-Frenched the name, turning it into a six-letter anglicized first name that looks balanced next to five-letter Romeo. Since Juliet was taken from Juliette, it has the same meaning: “youthful” or “Jove’s child.”
