Naughtiest Children's Names Revealed With Jack And Mia Topping The List
Picking a name for your little one can feel like a pretty whopping task, if nothing else because it ends up forming part of your little one's personality.
As much as we say that monikers don't matter, there does seem to be a subconscious part of us that thinks Karens are busy-bodies and Reginas are going to be school bullies (sorry, Mean Girls has triggered us...)
But what are the naughtiest names to give your child? Well, according to a new survey, Jacks and Mias are being pre-judged for their mischievousness.
In a survey - conducted by MyNameTags and CensusWide - 1,500 teachers, children and parents in the UK were quizzed on the most popular 20 baby names of 2019, and asked which they thought were the best and worst behaved.
And Mia and Jack were revealed as the UK's naughtiest names overall, while kids called Isla and Arthur tended to be the best-behaved.
In total, 23 per cent of teachers, children and parents thought Jack was the naughtiest title.
Meanwhile, other mischievous boys names included Harry, Connor, Daniel, Riley and Tyler.
Parents and teachers voted Mia as a naughty name, while children thought it was Emilys that were the ones to watch.
However, interestingly, girls names were generally ranked as better behaved than boys names.
(We'd love to say we're surprised, but we're just not....)
When it comes to girls' names, Grace was dubbed the best behaved, with just 4 per cent of voters thinking they would misbehave.
Perhaps even more shockingly, the survey discovered that 96 per cent of teachers, children and parents don't consider the name Mia as a 'clever' name, while Jack was also bottom of the list when it came to assumptions of intelligence.
Here are the naughtiest and best behaved monikers for you to peruse:

Of course, a name doesn't actually determine anything about a person - this is all a load of fun.
But it sure is interesting to see the assumptions people make about kids based purely on their titles.
To all the Mias and Jacks out there, we say prove the haters wrong!
