(Newser) – Holly Madison will have you know that her daughter is going to grow up just fine, despite being named Rainbow Aurora. The former Girls Next Door star and ex-companion to Hugh Hefner took to her blog to fight the "smug haters" who "bag on my choice of name," as she put it. "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," Madison writes. "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."

She adds that, despite her blog post devoted to the matter, she does not care what the aforementioned haters 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," Madison writes. "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." Rainbow was born March 5. See ETOnline for more.

Well, she might be a better mom than Kendra. But that is not saying much.

Would you really expect normal behavior from a chic that's famous for fucking a corpse?

What's the problem... that is a perfect name for a stripper. Which is probably what she will end up doing, just like her mother.
