Shakespeare does not reveal the first names of either the Montague or Capulet parents. They are simply known as "Lord and Lady ______________." Their position in the story is simply as parental figures; it is their grudge and their rules that limit the teens and help to set in motion the tragic events. Because they do not have a dynamic role as characters, it is not important to identify them as individuals.
