David and Victoria Beckham name their daughter Harper Seven.

Ever since we discovered that David and Victoria Beckham had named their baby girl Harper Seven, it’s been a mystery as to why they chose the peculiar moniker – until now!

So how did the parents of Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 6, come up with the name Harper Seven Beckham?

Harper is an old English name that Victoria has always loved, PEOPLE has learned, and seven is considered a very lucky spiritual number.

Harper was also born on Sunday (July 10) at 7:55AM – the seventh hour, in the seventh month, on the seventh day of the week – weighing 7lbs. 10oz.

And of course, seven was Beckham’s lucky jersey number when he played for Manchester United and the English national team.
