Watch out for Callum, Courtney and Jack

Teachers say they can predict behaviour based on names

by

Some names are naughtier than others. According to one-third of teachers surveyed in the U.K., they can spot a troublemaker just by looking at their class list. Callum, Courtney and Jack rated among the naughtiest names, while Alexander, Benjamin, Elizabeth and Charlotte were some of the brightest. The survey, conducted by Bounty.com, found that almost half of teachers make assumptions about their students based on their names.
