One of the most anticipated baby arrivals of the year didn't receive the typically odd Hollywood name, rather an old name tied to one of the most famous pieces of American literature. One-third of LilSugar readers named Harper Seven Beckham their favorite girls' name of the year. Her dad, David Beckham, explained the couple's thought process in choosing the name, saying:
"One of the reasons is Harper is an old English name, which we love, and one of the other reasons – Victoria’s favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird, and the author was Harper Lee. It’s a very strong, passionate book so that’s where Harper came from."
