Naughty and Nice Name List 2016

Xmas press release 2016


Have you been naughty or nice this year? Is your name on the annual School Stickers list?

With only one month until Christmas, today is the day when we launch our annual ‘Draft Naughty and Nice Name List 2016’.

This fun annual study found that Chloe and Jack are the names most likely to be at the top of Santa’s ‘nice list’ this Christmas, and boys called Adam, and girls called Laura, are more likely to be at the top of Santa’s naughty list, however there is still time for them to improve their behaviour before Christmas.

We supply more than 10,000 schools with stickers, postcards and certificates which teachers give pupils for good behaviour and achievement. To enable teachers, pupils and parents to track the rewards given, some schools give out coded rewards which pupils log online at, and others give out virtual rewards which are automatically recorded. Last school year, 59,000 students received over 1.1 million rewards. Analysis on the data reveals which names were awarded the most stickers – the nicest – and which were awarded the least – the naughtiest!

The study revealed that boys called Jack, Daniel, Joshua, Harry and James are the most likely to receive School Sticker’s rewards (for good behaviour in the classroom), but boys called Adam, Joseph, Charlie, Callum and Ben, received the least number of rewards.

Mums and dads are more likely to have an easier time if they have a daughter called Chloe, Emily, Sophie, Jessica and Megan, all names at the top of the School Stickers reward ‘league’. But if their little girl is named Laura, Eleanor, Daisy, Anna and Ruby, they could have trouble on their hands!

Neil Hodges, Managing Director, School Stickers said, “Our annual ‘Santa’s Naughty and Nice list’ is just a bit of Christmas fun and not to be taken seriously. There are many Adam’s and Laura’s that are wonderfully well behaved, and plenty of Chloe’s and Jack’s that are hardly little angels. School Stickers is trusted by thousands of schools to reward pupils for good behaviour and achievement. We’re proud that our products motivate and inspire young people, whatever their names!”

Neil continues, “We have been issuing this list since 2009 as it is popular with parents and teachers. Many people also find it amusing, and like to see whether their name is included. However all schools reward differently, with some giving out hundreds, and some thousands of rewards, so there is about as much accuracy to this as if Rudolf had written it.”
