Little girl is named after book's author
LA Galaxy footballer David revealed at the weekend that their baby’s unusual name was inspired by the novel’s author Harper Lee, as the story – which centres around racial inequality in America – is a favourite of wife Victoria‘s.
‘A lot of thought goes into our children’s names,’ Becks, 36, explained in a video on his Facebook page.
‘Harper was a name we’ve loved for a long time for a couple of reasons.
‘One of them was because Harper is an old English name which we loved and the other reason is because Victoria’s favourite book is To Kill a Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee.
‘And it’s a strong, passionate book, so that’s where Harper came from.’
Last night David once again took to Facebook to thank his 12m faithful fans.
‘Unbelievable, just seen how many ‘likes’ and messages have been posted,’ he wrote.
‘I wish I could respond to everyone individually but it might take me till the end of the year! Thanks for your incredible support.’
