You know when you do something naughty and you try to find something to blame it on? Well, we have a new excuse for you: your name.

A new survey has revealed the top 10 names for boys and girls that regularly appear on the naughty list.

School Stickers, an education reward company based in the USA, carried out the study across 60,000 children at 10,000 schools. And with those kind of numbers, it has to be a sure thing, right?


So, time for the big reveal. What are the naughtiest names for boys and girls? Here are the top tens:

Naughtiest Girls

  1. Ella
  2. Bethany
  3. Eleanor
