With the Internet buzzing over such an unusual moniker, Madison took to her website yesterday and explained the name "Rainbow" was taken from a former classmate and:

“She was a perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl... so I’m not worried about my daughter being ‘traumatized’ by having an unusual name."

And all you haters out there? Who are bashing the baby name? You will just make Rainbow stronger in the end.

"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,” Madison writes. “I spent most of my life being a people-pleaser who worried about what other people thought … and I don’t want that for her.”

What do YOU think of the name Rainbow?
