Naughty or Nice? Survey Reveals the Names of the Best and Worst Behaved Boys and Girls

Could whether your child is naughty or nice have anything to do with his or her name? 

A new survey has studied the names of more than 63,000 school children who recored good behaviour marks or achievement awards in online sticker books.

The company responsible for creating School Stickers analysed their data and came up with a list of best behaved children in class, as well as those most likely to get into some trouble.

Butter wouldn't melt! School Stickers analysed data gleaned from behaviour record books

Parents of girls called Amy, Georgia or Emma seem to have it all worked out, with children bearing those names recorded as having the best behaviour record. Other "good" names included Charlotte, Grace, Sophie and Alice.

The best of the boys included Jacob, Daniel, Thomas and James.

On the flip side, girls named Ella, Bethany, Eleanor, Olivia or Laura were dubbed the worst behaved according to the study, while boys named Joseph, Cameron, William, Jake or Joshua had a similar fate.
