‘Naughtiest’ children’s names revealed

With just under a month until the big day many parents may already be finding themselves saying to their children ‘if you misbehave, Father Christmas won’t come’


Another thing mums and dads could find useful this time of year is the latest names topping the naughty and nice list.

According to School Stickers’ annual ‘Santa’s Naughty and Nice list’, Leah is the naughtiest girls’ name and Joseph is the naughtiest boys’ name.

The nicest girls’ name is Anna, and for boys it is Harry.

Data from 70,000 pupils from across the UK was used to compile a list.

Managing director Neil Hodges said: “Our annual ‘Santa’s Naughty and Nice list’ is just a bit of fun and not meant to be taken seriously.

“There are many children called Leah and Joseph who are perfect little angels, just as there are many called Harry and Anna who Santa is watching!”

School Stickers are given as rewards for good behaviour with schools encouraged to log results into the company’s website.

A separate survey has revealed how much parents will spend on their children this Christmas.

Research by MummyPages found the average amount spent by mums will be £195 on each child.

Parents in the South West of England spend the least amount of money £168 per child but the figure rises to £207 in Scotland and £211.

A quarter of the 1,000 parents questioned said they would even lie to their partners about it.

One way mums and dads could avoid the big cost of Christmas is to take advantage of Black Friday deals.

Tomorrow retailers across the UK will cut their prices to kick-start the gift-buying season.

The American concept has crossed over to Britain in the last few years with selected goods sold at a massive discount for one day only, the last pay weekend before Christmas.
