Southern novelist Harper Lee’s first name entered the girls’ Top 1000 in 2004, the same year her beloved book To Kill A Mockingbird was widely chosen for the One City, One Book reading program. The name has zoomed up the charts in the decade since then, reaching Number 11 in 2014 and climbing to Number 1 in North and South Dakota. Parents not directly inspired by the writer may have heard of the name via its high-profile choice for the daughter of Victoria and David Beckham, picked by the little girl’s older brothers after their favorite Disney character Harper Finkle on Wizards of Waverly Place.
