David Beckham announced on Facebook that he and wife Victoria Beckham have named their new baby girl — born Sunday morning at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles — Harper Seven Beckham.

“I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven Beckham,” the soccer star wrote. “She weighed a healthy 7lbs 10oz and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA.”

The number of sevens in that sentence — not to mention the fact that Harper was born in the seventh month, and that David Beckham encountered more than a little luck as No. 7 when he played for Manchester United — may have inspired their baby (spice) girl’s middle name.

Personally, though, I like to think they took a little advice from “Seinfeld’s” George Costanza.

So what do you think of the name? Is your opinion more Costanza (pro)? More Susan (con)? Or split down the middle: pro Harper but con Seven? The comments section of this post awaits your celebrity baby name verdicts.
