Cordelia Rainbow is a GP combo of mine.

MidnightSky Says:


I think Rainbow is beautiful and I love hippie names, that aspect is a plus. Diversity in naming is a lot of fun.

The funny thing is, despite your warnings, nameberry, the only people who seem to judge these sorts of 'hippie' names are not the bearers, but rather you WASPish bourgeois types. Of all the 'outlandish-ly' named people, very few feel in any way adverse to their name. Proportionally, more of my 'normal-named' friends object to their name, I know I would hate to be an Emily F, a Sophie C.

Greece33582 Says:


In reference to it being a 'Hippie' name, and what? Why is nameberry so insistent on straight-laced middle America or acceptable hipster names? Times and names are evolving.

I would not have the guts. It's crazy. But I love it !!!!!!!

Nameberrygirl Says:


This is only a nickname. People need to remember that they are raising men and women not boys and girls

I'm a Banana Says:


Maybe Raini and use Rainbow as a nickname.

Cherilyn Says:


Been liking this for awhile, been thinking of using it lately. Nice meaning and symbol of God's promise. Would make a good first name or a middle name.

Bassilly Says:


Cute middle name I think!

NaomiNY Says:


I'm neutral on this name. One of my neighbors has a dog named Rainbow, and that Rainbow's a boy.

Impwood Says:


I can picture an adult with this name, but only one kind of adult; the old lady with the earrings and the colourful patchwork skirt. I would not recommend using it for a child at all as it absolutely doesn't work for all types of people or in business.

georgiaO Says:


I can't picture an old lady with this name! Gosh, so hippie.

Jessica_Kayla Says:


I can't imagine a real human being named this, but I recently named my Siberian Husky this. Cute on a dog I think.

CupcakeGirl13 Says:


Nickname ONLY,in my opinion. A grown up women wearing this name is weird. It would be rude. A fun nickname for Raina, like at home. But a real name? No.

Jane_Lewis Says:


I don't know why but I think it would fit perfect to a girl with 2 or 3 older brothers and no younger siblings

ShadedRuth Says:


I can't imagine a 30 year old Rainbow. Please consider aging with names.

raevynstar Says:


Eh....I liked it a few months ago, but now I don't.

madmaddie Says:

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I love it! It's a cool name!
