There are a lot of smug haters out there who bag on my choice of a name, but I don’t care about what they think. I want my daughter to be proud of who she is and learn to speak up and stand up for herself at a young age. I spent most of my life being a people-pleaser who worried about what other people thought or thought was cool and I don’t want that for her. I have always loved the name Rainbow. There was a girl in my school a few years younger than me named Rainbow and I was so envious of her name because it was so pretty and unusual. She was perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I’m not worried about my daughter being ‘traumatized’ by having an unusual name.
I didn’t think people really cared that much about what other people name their kids but reading through the comments on the US Weekly post proved me wrong. As far as celebrity baby names go, it isn’t the most extreme out there. It’s no Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee‘s kid). Or Audio Science (Shannyn Sossamon’s kid).
Ms. Madison got her nails done in rainbow colors to “celebrate my new daughter’s name!”
