This riddle has puzzled me:

Name the thing that is so flimsy that it breaks even by saying its name.

I have gone through the many things, but nothing fits this riddle. I would appreciate any help.

The answer is

Silence

So flimsy that it breaks even by saying its name

Once one utters the word "silence" one has broken any existing silence.

Nothing

Just a random idea.

When you say "Nothing", there is no longer nothing; there is now something (your voice). Just a random idea; inspired when you said "nothing fits to this riddle"

I think the answer is:

silence which is broken when you say 'silence'
