Because I will make good use of what you give me and will help you or anyone when I have money and food!” “Ok I will help you but I do hope you have learned your lesson” and she gave his two loafs of bread and a bag full of money.

Toni Morrison uses Pilate’s motif of names to represent the importance of heritage to Milkman. Beginning with her own name, Pilate embraced the name her father gave her despite the connotations it carried. She appreciated how thoughtfully he chose it to the point of wearing it in her ear. Before travelling to Virginia, Milkman’s name bore no significance to him. He didn’t know the history of his family, and he didn’t go by his given name.
