O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore doth thou love Juliet but not spell her name “Juliette”? Turns out Shakespeare wasn’t content with Juliette, the French offshoot of Julie, so he dropped the “–te” ending and had a new, made-up name on his hands. Despite Shakespeare’s rejection, Juliette has a lot to be proud of, including actresses Juliette Lewis and Binoche and its derivation from Julius, which means “youthful" and "Jove's child."
