David and Victoria Beckham have welcomed to the world the sixth member of their family, their fourth child and first daughter: Harper Seven. In terms of bizarre athlete baby names, this one ranks somewhere between George Foreman III and George Foreman IV. Everyone's trying to come up with an explanation: 7 was one of a few kit numbers Becks has worn in his career, and there's the legendary Seinfeld episode too. This isn't the couple's first weird baby naming: their first is Brooklyn, named after where the child was conceived. Maybe this time, the magic moment took place somewhere between Manhattan and Queens, making it impossible to tell.
