He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice, he’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.
The naughty list is probably the best disciplinary tool there is, teaching children that there will be consequences for bad behaviour – specifically that Santa won’t bring them presents at Christmas.
A new piece of research by Baby Centre has found that there are some names far more likely to end up on that much-avoided index, as well as some more likely to be on the nice list.
They trawled through names from books, films, folklore, and more, finding the ones most commonly associated with naughty behaviour or angelic acquiescence.
Sarah Redshaw, UK Managing Editor for BabyCentre said: ‘We found Santa’s naughty and nice lists but think he may have based them on hidden meanings and names of naughty book and film characters.
‘Many of the naughty list names are now popular choices for parents and we are sure all of these children will have made it onto Santa’s nice list this year.’
