The article applies a new approach to the problem of the name concept in the tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”. It is shown that W. Shakespeare’s tragedy is considered in a context of medieval dispute of the realists and the nominalists discussing ratio of a name and essence. The authors proved that Juliette acts as a supporter of Renaissance interpretation of medieval nominalism, testifying to independence of the person from own name. Romeo and Juliet displace the memory of the deceased nameless first ancestor by their death, becoming the fundamental victim in the Foundation of the Renaissance world of love. Shakespeare shows how the process of replacing the cultural code of the middle ages, which asserts the importance of the name. These codes contradict each other.
