Did you know there was a study that tracked kids’ behaviour in schools? Turns out, your little one’s name may or may not tell you a little bit about more you kid! Once the data was collated and analyzed, the results told us which names belonged to the naughtiest kids. Before you get worked up or upset, remember that it is a just a name after all, All in good fun, eh?

So, keep reading and find out whether your kid’s name falls under the naughty or nice category!

The Study:

School Stickers is a reward system, which went around schools and asked approximately 60,000 (clearly they have done thorough research with this massive number) kids to record the amount of stickers they received for their good behaviour. There were one million entries!, which is how School Stickers tracked the kids’ behaviour. After sifting through piles, or rather files, of data, they were able to come up with a “naughty list”. The “naughty list” tell us the names of kids who are more likely to get into trouble for bad behaviour. And yes, they did come up with a “nice list” as well!

So, let’s get right into it. Here are the lists of names that are naughty.

Neil Hodges, School Stickers’ managing director stated, “The annual ‘Santa’s Naughty and Nice list’ is just a bit of fun, and obviously there are many Ella’s and Joseph’s that are perfect little angels, just as I’m sure there are many Amy’s and [Jacob’s] that can be a bit of a handful.”

So, there you go. Even though research and data are all real, it doesn’t mean anything for your little ones. That being said, future parents, you must be careful when naming your baby! Just kidding. Again. ;)
