Because 'Soledad' in Spanish means 'Loneliness' and therefore it adds to the essence of Steinbeck's story which tells of how two brothers, Lennie Milton and George Small go place to place to find work. They are alone as well.

John Steinbeck chose to use Soledad, which means "solitude" in Spanish, as the nearby town in "Of Mice and Men" to reflect the themes of isolation and loneliness that pervade the novel. The town's name serves as a literary device to reinforce the emotional and psychological isolation experienced by many of the characters in the story. Additionally, the reference to Soledad underscores the difficulties faced by migrant workers during the Great Depression, who often lived transient and solitary lives.

'Soledad' is the Spainsh word for loneliness, which is a key theme in the novel. Steinbeck introduces this in a very subtle way.
