David Beckham Explains the Real Meaning Behind Harper Seven's Name

When David and Victoria Beckham named their baby girl Harper Seven, it was assumed that the 'Seven' came from it being the number on David's soccer jersey for so many years.

And it was the reason. But only in part. There is another meaning behind the name 'Seven', says David:

"A lot of people have assumed that it's just because it was my shirt number that I wore for many years, and part of it is," David said of Harper Seven Beckham in a video clip posted on his Facebook page.
"Part of it is because I had so much luck around wearing that number, wearing it for England, wearing it for Manchester United -- it was such an influential number throughout my career, and a lucky number, but that wasn't the main reason.
"The other reasons behind 'Seven' were because it symbolizes spiritual perfection, Seven Wonders of the World, seven colors of the rainbow and in many cultures around the world, it's regarded as a lucky number," he added. "We love the name. We love Harper Seven."

The couple chose the name 'Harper,' says Beckham,  because it is an "old English name" the couple love and because Victoria Beckham's favorite book, "To Kill A Mocking Bird" was penned by Harper Lee.
