The top 5 naughtiest boys name of this study included Joseph, Cameron, William, Jake and Joshua, while the naughtiest girl were listed as Ella, Bethany, Eleanor, Olivia and Laura.
However, a more recent survey conducted in the UK by My Nametags and Censuswide asked 1500 teachers, parents and kids which names were most associated with the best and worst behaviour.
According to this study, the naughtiest boys were Jack, Harry, Charlie, Oliver and George, while the naughtiest girls were reported to be Mia, Ella, Isabella, Amelia and Sophia.
The names associated with the best behaviour were Arthur, Noah, Oscar, Muhammad and Leo, while the best-behaved girls were reported to be Isla, Ava, Grace, Olivia and Emily.
‘Ella’ appeared on both of the worst-behaved girls lists, while Grace and Emily appeared on both of the best-behaved girls lists – so there may be a little truth to these studies after all!
