We Really Need to Talk About The Beckham Baby’s Name

As I’m sure many of you have heard by now, David and Victoria Beckham have gone against my express wishes and named their daughter something other than Santa. No, instead of having a little baby girl with a lovely, festive name with magical connotations, they went in a different direction. The name, of course?

Harper Seven Beckham.

Honestly? Ok, I’m fine with Harper. I actually love Harper. Kelly Kapowski named her daughter Harper, and I was just pleased as punch. The problem, for me, lies in the middle name. I didn’t even know that the Beckhams were Seinfeld fans:

  • They are actually not the first celebrity couple to name their child Seven. I forget who the others were but I know someone else did.

    • I think Harper is more commonly a girl’s name than a boy’s. Harper Lee? Atticus? Scout? Truman Capote? Wow! This comment is a veritable wellspring of great names, so take notes.

  • Being a football and Man United fan, I think it could be easily a tribute to the famous number 7 jersey. The celebrated number 7 jersey of Man United has been worn by many legends at Old Trafford, including George Best & Eric Cantona.

    Beckham was using no.10 at first and only started wearing the no.7 jersey right after Cantona retired. It’s a big deal jersey in Man U xD

    Beckham will always be a ‘Red’ at heart!
