Harper Seven Beckham's name explained

Tuesday July 12, 2011

Naming their newborn daughter Harper Seven has so far divided public opinion.

But a source close to David and Victoria Beckham has revealed that brothers Brooklyn, 11, and Romeo, eight, are behind the decision.

Harper is the name of a character from Disney series Wizards of Waverly Place, the boys favourite TV show. 

The second part of the name, Seven, is a number that holds personal significance for the family. "She was born in the seventh month, in the seventh hour, weighing seven pounds" a source said.

And seven also corresponds to football star David’s old shirt number for both Manchester United and England.
