A Rainbow of Baby Names: Names with Colorful Meanings

rainbow baby name ideasWhat’s your favorite color? Do you love it enough to consider using it as inspiration for your baby’s name?

There’s always been a special place in my heart for names with color meanings. When I was researching Baby Names Made Easy, I always did a little happy dance when I found a new name for my Colors chapter. With May in full swing and a few May showers in the forecast, I thought it would be a good time to share some rainbow-inspired names.
