The List Of The Naughtiest Baby Names Has Been Released

Deciding what to name your precious children can be an enormous task, but the names of the naughtiest children have been revealed and you can thank us later.

Everyone has those particular names they associate with the naughty kid who was in their class at school, but a study from School Stickers assessed the most common names of the girls and boys who behaved the worst in schools. The study looked at the rewards given to 63,000 children for their behaviour while in class.

According to School Stickers, the naughtiest girl was revealed to be called Ella, shortly followed by Bethany Eleanor, Olivia and then Laura.

The full list for naughty girls' names is;

  • Ella
  • Bethany
  • Eleanor
  • Olivia
  • Laura
  • Holly
  • Courtney
  • Amber
  • Caitlin
  • Jade

The same study found Joseph to be the naughtiest boy, while Cameron, William, Jake and Joshua also followed. Jamie, Lewis, Benjamin, Ethan and Luke also made the top ten.

  • Joseph

  • Jake
  • Joshua
  • Jamie

Obviously, we're not saying that if you call your children Ella and Joseph then they'll be the naughtiest in class, but we're not entirely sure we'd leave it up to chance.

At the end of last year, BabyCentre compiled a list of the most popular baby names of 2018 and it turned out Olivia came up trumps for baby girls, while closely followed by Sophia and Amelia.

When it came to baby boys, Muhammad came in first place, while Oliver, Noah and Harry came runners up.

Unsurprisingly, George also featured in the top 10, which is more than likely as a result of Prince George, son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Has anyone else already got their baby names fully picked out despite not even being pregnant?
