Lighthearted ish - so it seems netmums have done a survey, and the netmums have nicely informed me that the name I so carefully chose for my wonderful 7 month old DD is a 'naughty' name! It's a gorgeous name too, AIBU to be grrrrrrring about this?!

FarelyKnuts Tue 02-Dec-14 10:25:17

Seriously? Hahaha. Oh dear. The wrath of many poor mothers will be upon them.
My advice? Stay away from net mums! tbgrin

Hmmmwhatnow Tue 02-Dec-14 10:26:02

Oh dear that wasn't well thought out

Minisoksmakehardwork Tue 02-Dec-14 10:26:11

Lol. I'd hazard a guess that many of these names are also top ten names too.

TheLostPelvicFloorOfPoosh Tue 02-Dec-14 10:28:03

'Netmums' is at the top of the naughty names list.

What a ridiculous thing to do!

KingJoffreysDodgyEars Tue 02-Dec-14 10:29:25

How festive of them...

hmm grin

I was cross too - talk about labelling. I thought everyone now knew that labelling, even positively, is poor for children.

ratspeaker Tue 02-Dec-14 10:30:39

Sounds a load of baubles.
If they are popular names then statisically there will be a higher incidence of " naughtiness"

WeirdCatLady Tue 02-Dec-14 10:30:47

Wonder what a mumsnet names list would include? Where would cunt, wankbadger or cocklodger come? grin

Nethuns is shite OP x

netballcrazy Tue 02-Dec-14 10:33:32

Oh please share the list

DustInTheWind Tue 02-Dec-14 10:35:38

Come on then, post the names!
And the extensive fact-based evidence they used.

It's all on that link. It does remind me of the Katie Hopkins thing...

EEVEElution Tue 02-Dec-14 10:37:50

No wankbadgers in sight though wink

DixieNormas Tue 02-Dec-14 10:39:32

Ive been informed on here a few times that ds1 has a naughty boy name. At least mn are more sensible than to write a list though hmm

DustInTheWind Tue 02-Dec-14 10:41:31

Most spiteful boy I ever taught was called Gabriel. I have taught two delightful Gabriels since. They are basing it on sticker awards? Named stickers? How does that work then?
Where are all the non-MC WASP names?

DixieNormas Tue 02-Dec-14 10:41:32

Ds5s name is on that list.

Ds3&4 are on the nice boy list though hmm

marnia68 Tue 02-Dec-14 10:41:36

I remember there once being a whole thread posted about 'Ryan' being a hell-child name, yet it's on the 'nice' list
They have come up with the results by counting 'reward stickers'

marnia68 Tue 02-Dec-14 10:42:19

..actually it wasn't on Mn it was on TES

marnia68 Tue 02-Dec-14 10:43:45

..it's only a bit of fun!

Why did I click on that? I dont want to give them traffic!

Unless your child is called Lucifer, I dont think there are any naughty names.

You can certainly take a dislike to one based on your interaction with a child of the same name.

KingJoffreysDodgyEars Tue 02-Dec-14 10:49:10

It's all a bit pink and dayglowy...

DoraGora Tue 02-Dec-14 10:50:10

netmums does try its best to win the Guinness Book Numpty Award for websites. It's doing pretty well, I gather.

MrsCurrent Tue 02-Dec-14 10:54:49

Christ that site is a headache, why did I even click on it.

Neither of my boys' names on are on the naughty list, perhaps I need to let them know cos those 2 are beyond the naughty list after this morning!

bleedingheart Tue 02-Dec-14 11:01:52

You can't judge behaviour on the number of named stickers given out.

What about the use of stickers as bribery and positive reinforcement?
Or the well-behaved, quiet children who are often overlooked?
Or children with names that don't feature on stickers?

What a bag o'shite.

Whatsthewhatsthebody Tue 02-Dec-14 11:06:23

Have to say as a mum, cm and a TA I
Have never met a Harry who wasn't irresistibly naughtily mischievous. smile

Loving the wierd cat ladys list.
