Not half past seven after all
So it's nothing to do with the time she was born; Harper Seven was apparently named after the author (Harper Lee) of To Kill a Mockingbird, her mother's favourite book. And Seven? Well, that appears to be the Beckhams' favourite number: seven wonders of the world, colours of the rainbow, that kind of thing. They could of course have named her after the book's feisty heroine, but I have to admit that Scout Beckham is a tad snappy. But what ahout Harper Scout?
But having spent the last week wondering whether they'd chosen the name to fit the time, or decided to have the baby delivered at the time to match the name, I have to admit to being just a tiny bit disappointed.
