Default Half-past seven?

David and Victoria Beckham have named their fourth child Harper Seven. Does their unusual choice of middle name reflect a modern trend?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-14105747

As with the birth of their boys, the papers and internet are buzzing with theories on why the Beckhams chose Harper Seven.

Harper has become an increasingly popular name in the US, where the family are now based. It was the 887th most popular for a girl in 2004 but rose to 119 last year.

Jeez. Could've been worse, though: Scarlet? Deepa? Forrest?

However, I've fallen in love with Lenka Voltarora, merely for her name. Although it does sound a bit like a Russian sports car.

And there are two on from 1997 who seem to have their future mapped out for them (2nd and 3rd rows from the bottom):

And I'm trying to do something with Misty Stump from '98.

That place has got one hell of an identity crisis

What else did we expect from the Beckhams? No chance the child was named after Harper Lee as Victoria has confirmed that she never reads books. It is a first name in the US, but I like the theory that she was influenced by Harper's Bazaar. Could have been worse. She could have been called OK! Beckham or Take a Break Beckham.

I think the name sounds like a brand of cheap lager.

My latest favourite name was on the credits of a TV programme - Cloud Wang.
