Victoria and David Beckham

After speculation that they’d name their darling daughter Atlanta or Justice or Gucci or something startlingly unusual, the Beckhams, those ever-so daring baby namers, have dubbed their daughter Harper Seven.

Harper wouldn’t be surprising most places in the US. Amongst the glamorous, she’s as average as Emily. Dave Grohl, Lisa Marie Presley, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffani Thiessen … who doesn’t have a Harper?

But Harper is a great name. It works well with brothers Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz. Plus Seven is completely daffy and stylish at once – very Beckham-esque. It does remind me of creepy crime thriller Jennifer Eight – but nonetheless, I like the unexpected kick of the number in the middle.

  1. I dont hate it but all I see is Harper Steven. Which makes it so much harder for me to realize the name is for a girl.

  2. I can’t figure out how to reply in the right place, but thanks for your comments on my novel-names. Mason is supposed to be the oldest, b. late 90s and Marlo the youngest, b. late 00s. Thanks for commenting!
