Baby names for mischief makers
According to a poll by Bounty, teachers say that they can identify the children most likely to cause trouble by their names!
The names Connor, Callum, Courtney and Jack are the names teachers deem to denote a child most likely to get up to mischief. The poll of 3000 teachers run by bounty.com, found Chelsea to indicate a female troublemaker and Callum to be the naughtiest boy.
More than 49 per cent of the teachers surveyed made assumptions about a child based on their name, with 57 per cent of teachers acknowledging that naughtier children tended to be more popular than those who are well behaved.
When asked for names that they thought indicated bright children, the teachers suggested Elizabeth, Charlotte, William and Alexander. Of course, teachers are only human and – rightly or wrongly – sometimes made assumptions based on their previous experiences. Its important to highlight that Daniel appears in both lists and we all know it is possible to be both bright and naughty!
