Romeoville and Joliet - Romeo and Juliet?

Romeoville and Joliet -  Romeo and Juliet?

Here’s a fun one. Romeoville and Joliet may be neighbors, but WBEZ explores the possibility that they were originally named after the Bard’s star-crossed lovers. The exhaustive theories considered: a typo, some old-world nepotism and even the names’ appeal as an early PR stunt to sell land. It makes you wonder what goes into the naming of buildings and neighborhoods these days, and whether or not a little more romance or drama could help push rents and pricing.
