"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."

- Holly Madison, in response to backlash she's received for naming her daughter Rainbow, via her personal blog.

    If you don't care, why are you responding?

    Post-partum depression has given us the Rainbow's, Apple's, and Inspector Pilot's of the world. Maybe parents should wait 30 days before putting a name down in ink on the birth certificate. Mommy's in a La-La land fog when she sees her little "rainbow" or "apple" after 30 hours of intense labor. It's not fair to the kid.

    Re: michellt – You took the words right out of my mouth. If Holly truly didn't care about what other's think, then she wouldn't have said anything at all & instead just carried on with the task of being a parent. I do feel sorry for her daughter though because she'll receive constant teasing at school because of her silly name, because her mom had orgies with an 80yr old man for many years, because there are countless pics of her naked mom posing with other women all over the internet, etc.

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – Agreed! With mom's history, you'd think she'd name her daughter Agnes, or Pearl, or Gertrude, or Maude instead of a stripper name to carry on mom's tainted legacy.

    Good for her. People will judge for anything and everything they possibly can, but at the end of the day it's her child, and her decision. If this is the name she fell in love with then that is that. It doesn't matter what other people think. And Unusual names are becoming more and more popular, not just among celebrities.

    And you are so self secure now that you respond to haters defending yourself? FAIL. You should not respond at all. That's not going to teach your new baby anything, and obviously you haven't let it go either.

    Re: Lady Amalthea – its BECAUSE OF celebs that people are naming their kids Dishwasher and Rainbow……….

    Well if you want your daughter to speak up and stand up for herself, then you certainly gave her the right name

    Is she trying to ensure that her daughter will be bullied and made fun of?

  12. 12

    Hey Holly, if you ever have a son, name him Mansion, ok?

  13. Niall Higgins says – reply to this


    i like the middle name

  14. Evie says – reply to this


    I think that she gave her the most fitting name a playboy bunny could give her daughter. It is setting her up to either fit into the playboy mansion or have the perfect stripper stage name…nothing wrong with that.

    Why didnt she name her kid 15 minutes? And hope it doesent run out on her like the first one did.

  16. lex says – reply to this


    If she didn't give her daughter a fucking stupid name and make herself famous for banging the crypt keeper on tv for money, her kid wouldn't have to stand up for herself at a young age. How can she expect her kid to grow up being proud of herself when HOLLY herself had plastic surgery to change her appearance and changed her own name?

    My birth name is Rainbow and no, my mother was not suffering from post partum depression– she wanted me to have a name that no one else had, unlike the 15 Nicoles and Kimberlys in my class. And I'm so happy she did. I thank her every day for teaching me to me different from birth. Here's my story on "Being Named Rainbow:

    Re: Rainbow Kirby

    I think you have a pretty name. I do not know why this name is such a hot topic.

    Re: dd – I disagree. I think there are just a lot of people out there that feel the same way she does. It has nothing to do with copying celerities. Sure, there are some awful ones out there, but this is not one of them. This is harmless. People need to worry less about what other people name their kids and more about why they are so judgmental.

    Re: Rainbow Kirby – I agree, my parents gave me a generic name, which I changed when I was in my 20s. Why do I want to be normal and plain?

  21. GeorgeX says – reply to this


    Eh at least she can shorten it to just "Rain" if she wants. Good to have options.

    Funny how parents (most people for that matter) think that they can mold children to turn out a certain way. They are gonna pretty much turn out how they are gonna turn out regardless.

    But I would say to Holly: What if what your daughter wants is to be a people pleaser? So you want to try to change her to not be concerned with people pleasing? But she would be doing so to please YOU then, right? Hmmmmmmm.

    Holly is NOT famous for being smart.

  23. Kristy says – reply to this


    Come on everyone get off her case. If she wants to name her daughter Bookcase Flashlight that's her business, however that is 1 of those "slap your mamma" name, sooooo…

  24. Jessicah says – reply to this


    And with a name like Rainbow, she will have to do just that .. stand up for herself for her stupid ass name. Just confirms that I was right in not liking Holly! Rainbow is as stupid of a name as Apple!!

    Sorry but that's the name of a little pony, not a little baby.

    "Hey why is your name Rainbow Aurora?"-because my mom used to be a stripper gold digger- "Oh that explains it"
