Celebrity parents are notorious for their wacky baby names.
And Holly Madison‘s decision to name her daughter Rainbow Aurora certainly had the internet abuzz. “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,” the new mom wrote on her blog.
“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,” the former Playboy model added.
“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,” she continued.
She added: “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.”
The blonde beauty, 33, and her beau Pasquale Rotella welcomed baby Rainbow on March 5.
“I couldn’t be more blessed to have such a perfect daughter and have never been happier than I am now,” she shared.
