It seems that kids with certain names are more likely to be naughty.
All kids have their off days. Days when they prefer to put their dinner on the floor rather than in their mouth, when they refuse to do anything you ask them to do or, you know, decide that it’s a good idea to up-end the entire contents of your handbag just for a laugh. However, it seems that kids with certain names are more likely to be naughty, well, that’s according to new research by School Stickers.
In a new study, the company found that parents of Ellas and Josephs should prepare themselves, as these are the names of the naughtiest kids. Researchers examined behaviour rewards given to 63,000 kids in school, and found the top ten names of the worst behaved kids.

However, there was also a pleasant side to the research which found the names of children most likely to be good. Amy topped the list followed by Georgia, Emma, Charlotte, Grace, Sophie, Abigail, Hannah Emily and Alice. For the boys, the front runner was Jacob followed by Daniel, Thomas, James, Adam, Harry, Samuel, Jack, Oliver and Ryan.
