Holly Madison could care less about your thoughts on naming her daughter Rainbow Aurora. In fact, days after announcing her name and receive criticism, Holly took to her website to clear the air.
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 a perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I’m not worried about my daughter being “traumatized” by having an unusual name.
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.
We must admit, we also think the name is a bit bizarre but if there can be an Apple, Blue Ivy, Brooklyn and Bronx, there can be a Rainbow.
Best wishes Holly.
