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

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.

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.
