O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo

Juliet cries this into the night in Act II because she is so torn. "Wherefore" is a way of saying "why," so Juliet is saying, "Romeo, why are you who you are?" This means, why are you the man I fell in love with—and why are you a Montegue, the family my family is at war with?
