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.
