Santa’s naughty list – names of kids topping it revealed!

Researchers have revealed the names of the children who will be topping Santa’s NAUGHTY list this year…

Reward chart company School Stickers looked at data collected by the 9,500 schools they provide with motivational products to encourage good behaviour.

Analysis on the registration name and stickers collected found that children called Robert and Courtney were the best behaved in 2013, but that the children topping Santa’s naughty list will be Michaels and Phoebes!

The annual study also discovered that boys called Robert, Jamie, Oliver, Alex and Kieran were the most likely to receive School Stickers rewards for good behavior in the classroom, with Benjamins, Owens, Lukes or Kyles less likely to do so. Oh dear…

With the girls, mums and dads are more likely to have an easier time with daughters named Courtney, Rachel, Shannon, Lucy or Amy rather than Olivia, Holly, Alice or Bethany…

Neil Hodges, Managing Director, School Stickers said, “The annual ‘Santa’s Naughty and Nice list’ is only a bit of Christmas fun. All children are delightfully different and just because a child is called Robert or Courtney does not mean they are going to be angels, just as Michael and Phoebe are not necessarily little monsters! School Stickers has been trusted by thousands of schools to reward pupils for good behaviour and achievement ever since it was created by a teacher in 2000. We’re proud that our products motivate and inspire young people, whatever their names!”

Eek! Do you have a Michael or Phoebe?
