"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" is said by which of Shakespeare's characters?

Answer:

Juliet

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" is a quote from William Shakespeare’s play Romeo & Juliet. The line is spoken by Juliet in Act II, Scene II of the play. Juliet argues that it does not matter that Romeo is from her family's rival house of Montague, that is, that he is named "Montague". The reference is often used to imply that the names of things do not matter, only what things are. Juliet compares Romeo to a rose saying that if he were not named Romeo he would still be handsome and be Juliet's love.
