For instance, Lady Capulet does not consider Juliet’s rejection to marry Paris. The nurse also refers to Paris as a good man worth of her hand, hence revealing her fundamental resentment of her youthful charge. Juliet responds to the nurse’s patronizing depiction by shouting, “Ancient damnation!” (3.5.235). The account here acts as both reference to the problems she must address and the Nurse’s age, all that have been developed by a feud rooted in the older generation. It can be thus argued that Romeo and Juliet’s is meant to butt up against their elders’ political mechanizations, a dilemma that has been resonating expressively with teenagers for many generations. Why the naming-function is a significant theme in Romeo and Juliet The performative act of getting married is short of the naming-function till when it is publicly revealed at the conclusion of the play. It serves an important role in the play as it symbolizes many changes in the lives of the lovers. Juliet wonders if she can take Romeo in the outskirts of the networks of Montague and change his name, which is quite difficult as it could mean putting on hold every perpetuation. The theme is a focal one because it shows that other things can change the function, act, and power of a name and therefore introduce new facts in the discursive or physical network that it represents. In the play, Juliet and Romeo penetrate into each other’s networks, inter-weaving them together, and make changes in the flow and shape of both (Beshere, 2009).
