Meet Harper Seven

David Beckham's revealed in a Facebook video the reasons behind the names of his newborn daughter Harper Seven.

According to the star there is a literal reason behind the choice of Harper, "One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite book is 'To Kill A Mocking Bird' and the author was Harper Lee. It's a very strong, passionate book. That's where Harper came from."

So that puts an end to the speculation about Harper Finkle from the Disney TV show "Wizards Of Waverly Place" Beckham added, "A lot of thought goes into our children's names and Harper was a name that we've loved for a long time for a couple of reasons."

So where does the middle name Seven come from?

In the video clip Beckham goes on to reveal, "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. 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 symbolises spiritual perfection, Seven Wonders of the World, seven colours of the rainbow and in many cultures around the world, it's regarded as a lucky number. We love the name. We love Harper Seven."

Earlier in the week Victoria tweeted, "Baby Harper is the most beautiful baby girl I have ever seen, I have fallen in love all over again!!!" Victoria added: "We all feel so blessed and the boys love their baby sister so much!!! X VB."
