Children named Ella, William, Olivia and Joshua are most likely to be naughty says new study, (but Jacob, Daniel, Amy and Emma are little angels)
I was amused to read that new research by School Stickers has generated a list of the top ten naughtiest / nicest boy’s and girl’s names for 2014. Last year they looked at over 63,000 children, and noted which names received the most and least reward stickers over the course of a year to compile their ‘Naughty or Nice’ list and they’ve produced a similar list with this year’s Data.
Some have long claimed that names can influence your chances of doing well in life and now it seems that names can impact on behaviour at school too.
According to the study, children named Jacob, Daniel, Amy and Emma are the most likely to display good behaviour while those named Ella, William, Olivia and Joshua are most often to be found on the naughty step.
Should Santa use the list to decide who will get gifts this Christmas?
Should we elves base our reporting to Santa on this list or should we gather real observation? I am rather surprised not to see the name Elfin on the good list, must get in touch with them so they correct this! Don’t worry we work from facts rather than research (thank you to School Stickers for trying to help anyway, Santa and us elves are grateful).
