Why rainbow called?

There are several versions, where did the word rainbow. The authors etymological dictionary (2004 edition) tend to this version: the word "rainbow" is to reinvent the word "Raduga". This word is used in the Ukrainian language to refer to this natural phenomenon. Well, the word "Raduga", as you might guess, is the result of adding two words: "Paradise" and "arc". In this case, the rainbow literally means "motley arc".

To make Russian words from outlying dialects emerged from the confusion of languages one of which was Russian it's certainly cool.

Guest, then, according to you, the Slavs to denote a multicolored arc in the sky turned to Egyptian mythology?

it seems to me that the word rainbow has been the addition of two words RA and ARC,and means solar arc,because RA is the sun God...maybe I
olibusta just my assumption
