Top Twenty Unusual Celebrity Baby Names

David and Victoria Beckham welcomed their fourth child into the world this week.

Their first daughter, a playmate for sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz has been named Harper Seven, and there has been lots of speculation about the meaning of her name.

Various theories have sprung up about the reason behind their choice of Harper as first name, and it seems that the middle name Seven is a reference to David's Man United football shirt number.

Whatever you think of Harper Seven as a choice of baby name, it's certainly unusual and stands out from the crowd... as do the celebrity offspring in our Top Twenty Unusual Celebrity Baby Names...
