In addition to being born in the seventh month of the year, at 7:55 a.m., on the seventh day of the week (depending on who you ask) and weighing 7 pounds, Harper Seven’s footballer dad donned the No. 7 jersey when he played for Manchester United.
The Beckham’s ties to the number aside, some CNN.com commenters suggested Victoria and David took a cue from "Seinfeld’s" George Costanza when naming their first daughter.
“Seven - wasn't that George Costanza's choice for a baby’s name? Victoria must be a ‘Seinfeld’ fan!” commenter Mathjan suggested.
In one episode, Costanza, played by Jason Alexander, says he wants to name his child Seven.
“It’s a beautiful name for a boy or a girl - especially a girl, or a boy,” Costanza says. “It’s Mickey Mantle’s number. So, not only is it an all-around beautiful name, it is also a living tribute.”
However, Jerry disagrees, saying Mug, Ketchup, Bisquick or any other item in his pantry would make a better baby name.
“Seven periods of school, seven beatings a day, roughly seven stitches a beating and eventually seven years to life,” he says. “You’re doing that child quite a service.”
What do you think? Should Harper Seven join the unique celebrity baby name hall of fame?
