Names That Could Make Your Baby Naughty

A rose by another name would smell as sweet, but a child by another name might not be as naughty.

According to the Daily Mail, a recent study showed children with names like Ella, William, Olivia, and Joshua are often considered disobedient compared to kids with names like Jacob, Daniel, Amy, and Emma who are described as "little angels."

Researchers looked at more than 63,000 school children who logged good behavior and achievement awards, and put together lists of the best and worst behaved boys and girls names.

Nicest girls:
Amy
Georgia
Emma
Charlotte

Studies on baby names are nothing new. Gregory Clark, the author of "The Son Also Rises: Surnames & The History of Social Mobility" found that girls named Eleanor are one hundred times more likely to attend Oxford University than girls with the name Jade. Despite the name's popularity, Jades are rarely seen at top universities.
