Holly Madison Reveals Her Newborn Daughter’s Name


Earlier this week we learned that Holly Madison gave birth to her first baby. At the time of the baby’s birth announcement, Holly and babydaddy Pasquale Rotella had yet to decide on a name for their baby girl. After a few days mulling it over, the pair finally named their daughter … and are now ready to share that name with the world. I must prepare you, the baby girl’s name is quite unconventional and very colorful. Click below to find out what Holly and Pasquale decided to name their firstborn daughter.

Holly Madison’s bouncing baby girl has a name! And it’s full of creativity and color. The former Playboy model has exclusively revealed to E! News that she and beau Pasquale Rotella decided to name their daughter Rainbow Aurora Rotella, and the new mom also shared the meaning behind the moniker. “I wanted to give my daughter a unique name,” the former Girls Next Door star tells E!. “Growing up, there was a girl in my school named Rainbow and I was so envious of that name. I thought it was so pretty and unique!”

Erm, I’ll say that’s a unique name.

Madison’s man gushed over the couple’s bundle of joy to [In Touch] mag, “I’ve never been more in love than I am today as, after months of waiting, I finally was able to hold my daughter for the first time…I’m truly the luckiest man in the world.”

Aww … both Holly and Pasquale sound so happy right now. And while I, personally, wouldn’t choose the name Rainbow for my child, far be it for me to besmirch that decision to do so. Again, much love and congrats goes out to the newly expanded family. As for the name, well, what do you think? Are you a fan or … notsomuch?

  • Vicky

    That’s a terrible name… Aurora is super cute, but Rainbow… that is just mean to that poor child.

  • Joanna

    See, giving that name to someone sets them up for not really achieving much. I mean really can anyone imagine “CEO Rainbow Aurora” or even “This is my supervisor, Rainbow” or “Hi, I’m your neurosurgeon, you can call me Rainbow”

    Just sayin…

    • @Joanna – “Hi, I’m your neurosurgeon, you can call me Rainbow”

      !!!!!!!!!!! :D

    • Rainbow Kirby

      Joanna, my name is Rainbow and I work in Marketing. No one laughs when I’m introduced. They actually remember my name.

  • Dj

    Look it’s a bird, it’s a plane…nah it’s just a rainbow

  • nicole

    i like Aurora…but i agree with Joanna, giving a name like Rainbow..its almost setting you’re daughter up for certain uh..jobs.

    They’ll probably (hopefully) call her Rain for short, no? That’s not so bad.

  • Nicole O’Brien

    Rainbow Rotella……for some reason I’m craving a bowl of pasta right now.

  • Alys

    @Nicole, me too!

    Rainbow, it’s like they’re trying to get her to follow Holly’s career path in life…

    • Kiki

      haha! I thought the same thing… except with a name like Rainbow she won’t be a Playmate, she’ll just be a Vegas stripper. I wish she would have gone with Aurora instead. At least it invokes Sleeping Beauty!

  • Megan

    She’ll probably end up going by Aurora, which is a pretty name. Rainbow is just stupid, sorry.

  • Rainbow Kirby

    My birth name is Rainbow, and everyday I thank my mother for having the courage to give me a different name. I have never been forgotten and I have been confused with another woman. I’m neither a pole dancer or a street walker. Why all the hate for a different name?
