Holly Madison is defending her daughter’s unusual name.

Following the announcement that she has chosen the name Rainbow Aurora for her newborn, the 33-year-old mom took to her Celebuzz blog to explain her decision.

She wrote:

I got my nails done Rainbow colors to celebrate my new daughter’s name!

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.

I couldn’t be more blessed to have such a perfect daughter and have never been happier than I am now!
