Santa's annual 'naughty or nice' list of names has been revealed. Find out if your child is in for a treat or whether they're destined to receive that dreaded lump of coal this year.

According to new research Chloe and Jack are the names most likely to be at the top of Santa's 'nice list' this Christmas, as children with these names are thought to be the most well behaved.

Meanwhile, boys called Adam, and girls called Laura could find themselves at the top of the naughty list, unless they improve their ways before the big day.

The study, which is 'just a bit of Christmas fun' was carried out by School Stickers who analysed the names of 59,000 students that were recorded to have received rewards from their teachers over the last academic year.

Those who received the most rewards made it onto the 'nice' list, while those with the least were placed on the 'naughty' side.

Neil Hodges, Managing Director of School Stickers said the study was 'not to be taken seriously' as 'there are many Adam's and Laura's that are wonderfully well behaved, and plenty of Chloe's and Jack's that are hardly little angels.'

He added: 'We issue the list every year as many people find it amusing and like to see whether their name is on there. However all schools reward differently, with some giving out hundreds, and some thousands of rewards, so there is about as much accuracy to this as if Rudolf had written it.
