THEY often say your name can say a lot about you, and now a woman who works at a school has revealed how she and her colleagues judge your child by their name.
Manda Dee, who is also known as The School Office Lady on TikTok, has uploaded a variety of videos sharing her insights.
“As many of you know I work in a school office and in all the school offices we do have this conversation where your child’s name directly correlates with their personality,” she said in her first video.
Starting with the boys, she shared her thoughts on children with the name Liam. She went on to say that the personality traits she mentions match pretty much any boy with a name beginning with the letter L, like Leo or Lucas.
“Your child cries. He cries a lot and those tears aren’t real,” she said.
“Next up we have the name Jack. Jack is hyperactive. Incredibly hyperactive and crazy, every single one I have ever met.
“Isaiah’s – your kid is cute and he’s a liar. Mason, your parents are white. Jackson, your parents are white and one of them probably drives a ford.”
She said boys named Emmitt never listen to their mothers, Jadens try and kiss girls in the years above and those named Elijah don’t participate in group work because they’re too busy talking to their teacher about the TV show Dr Phil and basketball.
“Isaac or any less common bible names like Cain, Abel and Caleb, if a first-grade classes Legos are missing, they’re probably in his pockets,” she said.
“And finally we have Daniel. Daniel left his coat on the playground again and probably one of his shoes.”
Manda wasn’t done there, as she also uploaded videos revealing how she judges girl names.
Starting with the name Olivia, the TikToker didn’t hold back.
“Olivia you’re a sweetheart now, but you’re gonna be a b***h once you get to high school,” she said.
“Hazel, Ruth, Evelyn, Lilith, basically all of the old, old lady names, you need to stop correcting me child and your mum needs a nice glass of wine and a long walk in the sunshine.”
She added: “Any name that implies innocence – Heaven, Angel, Purity, Charity – your child is the opposite, your child is the devil.”
And what about Sophies and Sophias? Manda said they’re often the “cutest, nicest, smartest girls” but once they get into trouble, they stab their friends in the back.
“Charlotte. Be sure to check Charlotte’s backpack before she gets to class today because it’s likely there’s a dead bird in there that she found on the way to school,” Manda declared.
“Ava is definitely the Isaiah of the girl names. She’s so cute but she’s such a liar.”
She said the most requested name was Isabella, with Amanda coming in at second place.
Manda explained that Amanda’s will spill their sister’s nail polish on the classroom rug and will blame it on another kid.
She added: “Isabella refuses to wear her sneakers to gym, instead she wants to wear her Ana and Elsa sparkly jelly flats.”
Previously a teacher was left horrified after finding student’s note saying he’s been flashing his underwear in class.
And in parenting, I never call my kids bad and if they’re excited, they can yell as much as they want – I’m no strict parent.
Plus I drink around my kids, swear like a sailor and only feed them chicken nuggets – who cares, it makes my life easier.
