Best and worst behaved kids names revealed

ARE your kids naughty or nice?

With Christmas fast approaching children are biting their nails to know whether they have made it onto Santa’s nice list.

A survey released by the company School Stickers has beaten Santa to the punch, releasing the names of children who are naughty and nice.


School Stickers, which tracks children’s behavior and digitally rewards ones for behaving well, collected and analysed data based on 1 million entries and released a “naughty list” of names.

According to the survey, girls called  Ella, Bethany and Eleanor are the “naughtiest” along with Joseph, Cameron and William who took the top place for the naughtiest boy names.

Neil Hodges, School Stickers managing director, said: “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 Jacobs that can be a bit of a handful.
