Daughter’s name could be a reminder about EastEnders

Have your say

What do you make of the name given to the latest member of the Beckham family?

Harper Seven follows a tradition of celebrities giving at least one of their offspring a distinctly different moniker.

Think Frank Zappa’s daughter Moon Unit, David Bowie’s boy Zowie and Paula Yates’ daughter with Michael Hutchence, one Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily.

A number in a name is certainly different (although Archbishop Desmond Tutu got there first).

But somebody told me the other day that there might be a particular reason behind the Beckhams’ unusual choice of name.

Apparently it will be a useful reminder to David about what time EastEnders is on the telly.

Think about it.
