I would never name my child this; I have known way too many animals (dogs, horses and cats included) with this name.

Actually it is pronounced Row-MAY-o. Not rome-e-o.

It's a great name, but I'd never dare to call my son Romeo. I know a boy named Romeo, and no one talks to him without alluding to Romeo & Juliet ("Hey, Romeo, where's you're Juliet?" for example). I wouldn't want my child to have to bear this.

A rose by any other word would smell as sweet.

Shakespeare was great for using Romeo, but when he did he defined the name and I think put claim on it. It should be left for the stage. Or animals, in fact, I have a dog named Romeo. But for children, no.

If this name didn't remind me so much of that annoying rapper, I think I would name a kid this in the future.

Just a thought. If you like the ring of this name (and it's beautiful, no doubt) but you can't bear the Shakespearean reference (or the rapper one for that matter), consider adding an "r" between the "e" and the "o" and changing it just slightly to "Romero". "Romero" is an Hispanic surname but serves quite nicely as a substitute for the overburdened "Romeo". Pronounced "ro-MAY-ro".

Alpha Romeo is a famous Italian sports car manufacturer. I'm including this reference to point out that the correct Italian pronunciation IS roh-MAY-oh and not, ROH-mee-oh. No self-respecting car buff says, ahl-fah ROH-mee-oh!

My dad once knew a guy named Romeo who actually dated a girl named Julian, lol! It's sweet. I think it fits really well on a dark-skinned person, partly because of that cute rapper, Lil' Romeo.

"Romeo" is also the code word for the letter "R" in the NATO phonetic alphabet.

Romeo doesn't sound flattering as a name and is kind of pretentious. Unlike Juliet, Romeo is VERY heavily associated with Shakespeare. I'd avoid using it.

Romeo is from "Romeo & Juliet". He falls in love with some girl he barely knows, goes into a depression, and then kills himself for sheer entertainment so that he can be with Juliet. Yeah, that's EXACTLY who you want to name your kid after.

It's a very popular name among cats in Italy.

If it wasn't the name of the male protagonist in one of the most famous love stories of all time, I definitely would consider naming my child Romeo. It sounds so soft yet masculine. Damn you Shakespeare!

I've named my cat Romeo. I didn't know that this name was so common for animals actually.
But when I call him, I feel like a idiot when I call "Romeo, food. Do you want a fish?" It's really stupid when you hear yourself.
In Holland, the Harry Potter character, Kingsley Shackelbolt, was named Romeo too. Romeo Wolkenveldt. But I preferred Kingsley more.

A name that will turn out to be really ironic if a little boy it's given to grows up to be unattractive, asexual, celibate, and/or called to the priesthood.
