MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A tongue-in-cheek survey has revealed the names associated with kids who get the most kudos in the classroom.

The survey results were published November 25, 2014, by, which markets reward stickers worldwide, including some to teachers and schools. Kids who get the reward stickers can then log in to their portal to redeem the reward stickers for stuff.

They’ve had more than a million of those rewards redeemed in the past year.

Their survey showed boys named Jacob, Daniel, Thomas, James and Adam were the most well-behaved boys this year. Rounding out their top ten list of the “nicest boys” were Harry, Samuel, Jack, Oliver and Ryan.

Amy, Georgia, Emma, Charlotte and Grace were listed as names of the most well-behaved girls. The top ten “nicest girls” list also included Sophie, Abigail, Hannah, Emily and Alice.

“The annual ‘Santa’s Naughty and Nice list’ is just a bit of fun. Obviously there are many Ellas and Josephs that are perfect little angels, just as I’m sure there are many Amys and Jacobs that can be a bit of a handful,” School Stickers Managing Director Neil Hodges said.

Their just-for-fun list of names for girls less likely to get those rewards included Ella, Bethany, Eleanor, Olivia, Laura, Holly, Courtney, Amber, Caitlin and Jade. Boys’ names on the “try harder” list included Joseph, Cameron, William, Jake, Joshua, Jamie, Lewis, Benjamin, Ethan and Luke.

“As this is only a draft list, there’s still time for the ‘naughty’ children to earn some extra rewards. This might even motivate them to do so!” the site said.
