Last week David Beckham and wife Victoria Beckham named their newborn daughter Harper Seven Beckham and revealed her to the world and now the little girls name has caused a surge in sales of the novel To Kill A Mocking Bird.
The Beckhams announced that Harper was named after the books author Harper Lee, a favorite of Victoria Beckham and then Amazon saw a 123% jump in the number of books sold.
The video message said:
“A lot of thought goes into our children’s names and Harper was a name that we’ve loved for a long time for a couple of reasons,” while adding, “One reason is Harper’s an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria’s favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird and the author was Harper Lee. It’s a very strong, passionate book. That’s where Harper came from.”
You may recall that back in 2005 Beckham told The Guardian:
“I haven’t read a book in my life…I don’t have the time. I prefer listening to music, although I do love fashion magazines.”
Someone should inform her that To Kill A Mocking Bird is a book.
