Beckham: All the truth beyond the name Harper Seven
David Beckham explains where the name of his last daughter comes from. That is what he said: 'A lot of thought goes into our children's names and Harper was a name that we've loved for a long time for a couple of reasons. One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. It's a very strong, passionate book. That's where Harper came from.'
So what about Seven? The explanation is easier than we thought: 'A lot of people have assumed it’s just because of my shirt number that I wore for many years, and part of it is because I had so much luck around wearing that number, wearing it for England, wearing it for Manchester United.’, furthermore he added: 'The other reasons behind Seven was because it symbolises spiritual perfection, the Seven Wonders Of The World, seven colours of the rainbow and in many cultures around the world it's regarded as a lucky number. So we love the name, we love Harper Seven. We're very proud of having her in our lives and in our family and it's an amazing time for our family right now.’
