“Naughty” and “Nice” Names Revealed, Just in Time for Christmas

Santa’s been busy making his list and checking it twice and it’s not great news for Lexi, Esther, Summer or Libby.

Sorry ladies, but you’re among the list of the naughtiest little turds of last year, according to this cheeky survey at least.

Naughty and nice names 

Every year we get access to the names of the naughty and nice kids courtesy of School Stickers. Although it’s all just a bit of fun, there could be some truth to it. Did your kids’ names make either list?

Here are the findings:

Worst behaved names

  2. Ella

Grace, Olivia and Emily made it onto both “nice” lists. Jack, Oliver, Leo, Harry and Charlie featured on a naughty list and a nice list, depending on the survey. Go figure.
