Curley's wife is so lonely and insignificant (among the men of the ranch) that Steinbeck doesn't give her a name. She is simply Curley's property. She tells Lennie that she wants company and has a right to it. She says Curly is not a nice man and continues to lead Lennie on to disastrous consequences.
