New research has shown that we are often very quick to judge kids purely based on their names – and ‘Jack’ and ‘Mia’ have been announced as being the worst behaved ‘names.’
The investigation lead by MyNameTags looked at the views of 1,500 teachers, children and parents in the UK. They were asked to rank the most fashionable names of 2019 from based on good or bad behaviour.
And it’s bad news for parents that have called their little ‘angels’ Mia and Jack as they were both unveiled as the UK’s naughtiest names.
Meanwhile, kids with the names Isla and Arthur are considered the best-behaved children.
Subsequently on the list, Harry, Connor, Daniel, Riley and finally Tyler have also made it onto the naughty boy list!
Whilst parents and teachers have voted ‘Mia’ to be the worst behaved girl, children believe that ‘Emily’ are the root of the trouble in the classroom.
Unsurprisingly, girls are thought to be less likely to be naughty compared to boys.
The survey also showed that 96% of teachers, children and parents don’t actually associate the name Mia with being clever, and Jack was also last on the list for being intelligent.
Ok, so we’ve kept you waiting long enough – here’s the Top 5’s in all their glory! Have you spotted your child’s name?
