Naming your child is one of the biggest decisions of your life… and theirs.
Your little one is likely to be stuck with the name for the rest of their life.
So, it’s important to choose one that you love.
And, while names can't tell you much about a person certain monikers can come with less-than-pleasant associations.
One of the traits we don’t want others thinking about our child is that they’re naughty.
Does your child's name appear on the list? Tell us if you disagree with it in the comments section...
While a name is hardly going to make your child be mischievous it turns out that some are pre-judged that way.
A recent survey, run by MyNameTags and CensusWide, asked 1,500 teachers, parents and kids in the UK about what names they saw as the best and worst behaved kids.
Mia and Jack were found to be the UK’s naughtiest names, reports Tyla.
While Isla and Arthur were seen as the most well-behaved.
A massive 23% of those asked saw Jack as the cheekiest chap.
While other ‘naughty’ boys names included Harry, Connor, Riley, Tyler and Daniel.
Grown ups though Mias were the worst-behaved girls while kids believed Emilys were worse.
However, 96% of all those asked thought that girls named Mia would be clever.
While Jack didn’t fare so well and was still at the bottom of the list when it came to intelligence.
Overall though girls were viewed as better behaved than boys in general.
And, Grace was viewed as the best-behaved girls name of all – just 4% of those asked thought they would misbehave.
These are the best and worst behaved names in the survey:

Now, we all know that names don’t make our kids act in a particular way.
So if your little Sophia is an angel, then this survey doesn’t change a thing.
But, it’s interesting to know the assumptions our chosen monikers cause people to have.
