Returning in 1977 to America, the family adopted the surname Phoenix. In recognition of the fresh start they were planning for their lives.

*The Phoenix children are all very different in looks and personality
River: "We all have are distinct things. Leaf was the family clown, very witty, very smart. Mom had to work a lot, so Rain was the mother and the older sister and trentsetter. Liberty was always the most physical, like an acrobat, very nimble and strong, a really beautiful girl. And Summer was the youngest, the baby of the family with big brown eyes and blond hair, more American looking. Liberty and Rainbow have more of an ethnic look. Rain definitely looks Israeli or Italian. Summer is more WASpy."
