Although she's not even two weeks old, looks like little Harper Seven Beckham takes after her mommy. Not only is she "daddy's little girl," but in true Victoria Beckham fashion, she's already a trendsetter!

Sales of Harper Lee's classic novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," have reportedly soared after Victoria and David revealed that they named their daughter after the iconic novel's author. The U.K.'s Daily Mail reports that sales of "To Kill A Mockingbird" have risen by a staggering 123 percent on Amazon.co.uk.

First published in 1960, the novel rose to number 38 on the bestsellers charts after little Harper's name prompted fans of the Beckhams to read the classic book. David reveled how they came up with the name in a video posted on his Facebook page. According to the soccer star, the power couple had decided on Harper after Lee, who is Victoria's favorite author.

In the video below, Beckham states: "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. One reason is Harper's an old English name which we loved and one of the other reasons was Victoria's favourite 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."

In more Beckham news, teen idol Justin Bieber is rumored to be performing a private show for the Beckham children. The Beckham boys -- Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz -- are huge Bieber fans, and it looks like little Harper is sure to follow in their footsteps.

David Beckham hit the field last Saturday debuting his new pink soccer cleats with the names of his four children stitched onto them. And just in case you needed more proof that David Beckham was the perfect father and husband, he posted the following picture on his Facebook page this morning, with the caption, "A little something I made earlier.....a home-made Risotto for the family."
