Names symbolize the changes in Taylor's character:

The infant Marietta demands to have a different name as a sign of respect: the name Missy is significant in defining her place within her particular world and her relationship with her mother. The second change in the narrator's name, from Marietta to Taylor, demonstrates an equally significant change in the character: she adopts a new name as she adopts a new perspective on the world, broadening out from her rural Kentucky background to a larger view of life.
