sounds like a toilet cleaner to me (like harpic...) but each to their own
i think seven is beckhams football number or something, apparently

Sounds like a time. Is it when she was conceived?

There are lots of threads on this.

It is a nice enough name and no one elses business.

I thought it was going to be called Beverly...confused

ZZZenAgain Mon 11-Jul-11 16:50:38

I quite like Harper. Seven is a bit strange but a middle name, so who cares?

I read somewhere that the Beckhams wanted to take time to get to know their daughter before choosing a name but obviously that wasn't true, or maybe they're not capable of putting much thought into anything

Harper Valley PTA. Harpic toilet cleaner. Either way will the poor child be called Harpy by her dbs and kids at school?

'nice enough name' FAB? IMO it's fucking awful -Ludacris would have been an improvement.

Harper reminds me of to kill a mockingbird which is good.
seven i'm not so keen on personally.

MrsKravitz Mon 11-Jul-11 17:11:56

Harper is nice. There was a doctor on ER called Harper, it really suited her.

valiumredhead Mon 11-Jul-11 17:16:10

Oh I quite like it! Not that unusual.

Perhaps they were sponsored by Hartford Steam Boilers.

I hope they don't sign the middle name like a back to front 7.

BelleDameSansMerci Mon 11-Jul-11 17:21:08

Actually, I like it. Harper is a great name and, actually, Seven, while unusual, isn't that bad. I'm sure the name has significance for them and she's not really likely to have a "normal" life so it's unlikely to cause her much angst in the playground!

Seven, without six and eight, makes me think of seven the movie. not good.

Why was six scared of seven? because seven eight nine.

Oh FFS. Beckham wore number 7 for Man Utd and for England.

Footballers are a superstitious bunch and 7 is lucky for them - the Beckhams had hoped for a daughter for years.

Don't think it is odd at all and it is nobody's bloody business anyway.

I said it before on another thread, I don't understand why people get so bothered about names that don't conform to the norm. I don't like bland names. I think it's sweet, they obviously like it, not a big deal really.

I like Harper. There was a thread recently asking what people thought of this name - wonder if Victoria is an Mn'er.

Seven of Nine on Star trek - maybe they are trekkies?
