The shattering of the doll made Keller feel sadden for she knew that every person has a name, making her feel like she destroyed something that she made feel unwanted. All what Miss Sullivan was teaching Keller was that the doll had a name. Without their name, they were only items that no one bothered to name. Everything has a name which is what gives the items purpose of being alive. The purpose of naming people, for example, is giving them a sense of identity.
