I also have no opinion. Nor do I know what it is.

(what is it?)

JamieAgain Mon 11-Jul-11 18:18:43

I am always nice, BTW

It is Harper Seven apparently. Perfectly lovely.

Dreadful name, sounds like the sister to 7 of 9 (and she'll get called Harpic).

JamieAgain Mon 11-Jul-11 18:21:26

Blakes Seven would be better

<still nice>

Harper is actually a great name. Harper Lee. Great author. Well done.

YANBU. A healthy happy baby has been born to a family that loves her - why people would want to mock and be shitty about it is beyond me.

No no no ladythumb that is not right! AIBU to just think congrats and then get on with my life - why be spiteful about it just because its the internet and a famouse type? It's not really unusual at all.

Why does anyone care?

How nice for them. Congrats.

Whether its Harper Seven or Tender Nine it would be a teensie BU not to have a quiet snigger at such a attention seeking silly rather unusual name [hmmm]

grumpypants Mon 11-Jul-11 18:43:29

I know. If they'd called her Candy Floss Starlight Beckham she'd be rubbished too.

nanar Mon 11-Jul-11 18:43:38

I am thrilled for them - and I don't care if that's very sad! I have 3 DS and then a lovely DD (sorry, the DS are lovely too!) and I totally understand how excited they must be. Plus it's just lovely having another baby!

Don't particularly care about what they call her - each to their own!

Squitten Mon 11-Jul-11 18:45:22

I feel ambivalent about the name - expected much worse! But the idea that Victoria "I've never had time to read a book" Beckham named her after Harper Lee is laughable

worraliberty Mon 11-Jul-11 18:45:24

Couldn't care less really as I don't know them.

It is a fucking stupid name though

L8rAllig8r Mon 11-Jul-11 19:24:56

YANBU. But you cannot blame other people for being interested, as the Beckhams court publicity at every opportunity they can hardly be surprised at folk taking an interest.

Mrsfluff Mon 11-Jul-11 19:29:03

YANBU and I rather like the name!

fedupofnamechanging Mon 11-Jul-11 19:38:28

I'm sorry, but Seven is a stupid name. If they didn't want people to take the piss, then they shouldn't have made such a silly choice.

Harper is nice though

MrsGuyOfGisbourne Mon 11-Jul-11 19:54:01

yanbu good on them. Considering the track record of other 'celebs' that change partners like they change their underwear, they seem a solid family bringing up their kids in a loving environment
