Shakespeare’s original version
‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy.

Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.

What’s Montague?
It is nor hand, nor foot,

Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part

Belonging to a man.
O, be some other name!

What’s in a name?
That which we call a rose
By any other word would smell as sweet.
Modern English
Only your name is my enemy.You’d be yourself even if you weren’t a Montague.
What is a Montague?
It isn’t a hand, foot, arm, face, or any other body part.
Oh, change your name!
What does a name mean?
A rose would smell as sweet
even if we called it by some other name.
