Fashion designer and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has registered her daughter Harper’s name as a trademark in Great Britain and in the European Union, the BBC writes. The Harper Beckham trademarks cover a wide range of products, including toys, clothing, and beauty products, along with entertainment services. Victoria is named the holder of the trademark rights as Harper’s parent and guardian.
And why leave out Harper’s older brothers — Cruz, Romeo and Brooklyn? Trademarks for the three boys’ names were registered at the same time as Harper’s. Victoria registered her name as a trademark in 2002 and her husband, David, registered his in 2000.
The family brand is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of pounds — from David’s sports career and endorsement deals, Victoria’s Spice Girls career and fashion business, to the burgeoning careers of the couples’ three sons. Brooklyn is publishing his first photography book this year, while 14-year-old Romeo has modeled for Burberry, and singer Cruz released his first single last year.
It happens that Victoria Beckham’s favorite book is ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ written by Harper Lee, so you can see where her daughter’s name came from. Five-year-old Harper’s middle name, which is “Seven” — dad David’s jersey number when he played for Manchester United and England — was not included in the trademark registrations.
