    If you're Italian, or of Italian descent, it would be fine.  But it is so far out in left field, for most people, it would lead to a lifetime of teasing.  Also, I hope you know that CENTURIES before "Romeo and Juliet" was a film, it was something called a "play", which is sort of like a screenless film that's done live.

    You realize Romeo and Juliet was a play long before movies were even a thing, right?

    No it would not be a good idea for the poor lad ...hamster , it'd probably be okay .

    Unless you live in Italy, you will need to teach the kid to fight.  It is a sissy name, and definitely not American-wounding.  He will be harassed by the kids.

    I'd take Benvolio over Mercutio if I'm being honest. It's the general pronunciation of the name that makes me go "nope no thanks".
