How Harper Seven Beckham Got Her "Lucky" Name

As celebrity baby names go (hi, Apple!), David and Victoria Beckham have picked a fairly "normal" name for their brand new baby daughter, Harper Seven. But where did the parents of Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, get their inspiration?

According to, Harper is an old English name that Victoria has always loved, and seven is, of course, considered a very lucky number. But, in addition to it being the number high rollers are hoping for, seven seems to be the digit that was meant for this little lady.

Harper Seven was born Sunday morning in L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center weighing 7 lbs. (and 10 oz.) in the seventh hour in the seventh month -- on the seventh day of the week. It was also her dad's jersey number when he played soccer for the Manchester United and the English national team.

With two gorgeous celebrity parents, there's no doubt that Harper is blessed -- and we're hoping her lucky name provides her with even more good fortune.
