Reguardless of the way society tries to exalt the identity found within a name, no social convention should have a say in Louise’s identity. Because of the uniqueness and the time that she has owned her name, it is still important to her. In spite of the importance, what defines Louise Mallard is what she would do with her life if ever given the chance to be independent. Her identity, as well as all of society, is not recognized by what will be carved into stone when placed six feet under but by what was done with that
