South Carolina alloy delivers babies named ‘Romeo’ and ‘Juliet’

What’s in a name?

A hospital in Hardeeville, S.C., was home to a fluke of Shakespearean proportions when staff ironically welcomed two babies named Romeo and Juliet.

Delivered by the suitably noble-named Dr. Randall Royal at Coastal Carolina Hospital, Romeo Arcangel Hernandez would arrive at 2:06 p.m. Sunday while the doubt of “wherefore art thou Juliet?” would be answered 18 hours after when unhappy partner Juliet Evangeline Umana was innate at 8:14 a.m. Monday.

“We had picked the name out months ago,” Juliet’s mom, Christiana Shifflett, told ABC News. “We wanted a J name to go with the son’s name, Jonas. We picked Juliet since we were examination the TV show ‘Psych’ and the character’s name is Jules.”

“We named him after a thespian named Romeo Santos that my husband and we both love,” pronounced Romeo’s mom, Morgan Hernandez.

The hospital’s baby photographer, Cassie Clayshulte, posted photos of the camera-ready couple to Facebook, where the story got shared over 1,000 times.

Far from behaving the Capulets and the Montagues, the relatives of Romeo and Juliet shared a giggle about the situation, with the little girl’s dad, Allan Umana, stating, “Our kid’s already famous and she’s only a day old.”
