It’s back – School Stickers recently published their annual list of naughty and nice names just in time for Christmas. So, the big question is, have your kids been naughty or nice? Come and see the 40 children’s names that made Santa’s lists.
Are you a mum to a Chloe, Emily, Harry or Jack? Do you have a Jacob, Charlie, Georgia or Isabelle at home? Congratulations! Your child’s name made the list. But which one?

The Science Behind the Lists
While the annual report is all a bit of fun, there is some truth to the names that make the lists. So how does it work?
School Stickers supplies thousands of schools with stickers, postcards and certificates. Teachers give these to pupils for good behaviour and achievement.
The names on the naughty and nice list are compiled from the virtual rewards automatically recorded through their database.
On their blog the company says: “To enable teachers, pupils and parents to track the rewards given, some schools give out coded rewards which are automatically recorded.”
“Last analysis on the data reveals which names were awarded the most stickers, the nicest, and which were awarded the least, the naughtiest!”
Just A Bit of Christmas Fun
Managing director of School Stickers Neil Hodges is quick to point out that while the naughty and nice list is amusing, it shouldn’t be taken seriously.
“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.”
Fact or fiction, it’s all a little bit of Christmas fun. My son’s name made the naughty list (no surprise there) but my daughter’s name didn’t make it this year. What about your kids?
