Holly Madison Defends Daughter’s Name

Holly Madison had a baby girl recently and named her Rainbow Aurora. Apparently she’s getting a lot of hate over it. From US Weekly:

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!”

    • That was my first thought too! I prefer the french spelling, “Rainbeau” like Rainbeau Mars, Yoga Instructor.

  • Well…keeping perspective, Holly is from “simple” beginnings so it could be something like Kimmy-Sue or Tiffany…any of the -Sue’s or -ny’s really. So I applaud her Hippie-Disney originality. *cough* The nails remind me of Dexter though so that’s just a hard-pass.
