LONDON, December 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
- Robert and Courtney are best behaved children in 2013
- Naughty Michael and Phoebe need to be good all December
Children named Robert and Courtney are most likely to be at the top of Santa's gift-list this Christmas.
Research by School Stickers, the leader in school rewards, has revealed that children with these names are the most likely to behave well.
But girls called Phoebe and boys called Michael may not have so many presents to open on Christmas morning. Unfortunately, children with these names appear to be more prone to naughtiness! However, as this is only the 'draft' list kids still have two weeks to improve their behaviour!
The annual study revealed that boys called Robert, Jamie, Oliver, Alex and Kieran are the most likely to receive School Stickers rewards (for good behaviour in the classroom). But parents should be wary of naming their sons Michael, Benjamin, Owen, Luke or Kyle as these names appear least often among recipients (of rewards).
Mums and dads are more likely to have an easier time if they have a daughter called Courtney, Rachel, Shannon, Lucy or Amy all names at the top of the School Stickers reward 'league'. But if their little girl is named Phoebe, Olivia, Holly, Alice or Bethany they could have trouble on their hands!
School Stickers supplies 9,500 schools with stickers, postcards and certificates and this year over 65,000 pupils logged a reward in their online sticker book. Analysis on the registration name and stickers collected reveals who got awarded the most stickers - the nicest - and the least - the naughtiest! Four million rewards have been redeemed since http://www.mystickers.co.uk was launched six years ago, one million in the last 12 months.
Neil Hodges, Managing Director, School Stickers said, "The annual 'Santa's Naughty and Nice list' is only a bit of Christmas fun. All children are delightfully different and just because a child is called Robert or Courtney does not mean they are going to be angels, just as Michael and Phoebe are not necessarily little monsters! School Stickers has been trusted by thousands of schools to reward pupils for good behaviour and achievement ever since it was created by a teacher in 2000. We're proud that our products motivate and inspire young people, whatever their names!"
