Their Christian names are never given; throughout the play the couple are referred to only as "Lord" and "Lady" Capulet. 

Interestingly, a historical source for the Capulet legacy was just brought to attention today by another of our editors.  Apparently, there is a home in Verone dating to the 13th century that is thought to have been the inspiration for Shakespeare's setting of the Capulet house and grounds.  To this day, starry-eyed and star-crossed lovers leave the remenants of their bleeding hearts affixed to the ancient walls.  To view the article as well as pictures of the home and the messages, visit the first link below.
