The baby names guaranteed to land on Santa’s naughty list


When it comes to picking a baby name, there’s a lot for parents to consider. Is it unique without being too “weird”? Does it mesh well with your last name? And will it stand the test of time? But maybe there’s one more thing parents-to-be should be considering: Is the name destining your bouncing bundle of joy for bad behavior?

School Stickers says it just might.

The site that lets teachers tally rewards for kids’ behavior has once again released a list of the 10 naughtiest and 10 nicest names for kids, based on children who have logged the most and least rewards throughout the year. Clearly the list is meant to be taken in good fun, not as fact, but if you’re looking for a name or want to see where your kiddo (or friends) would land on Santa’s big list, here’s a look:
