Lists of the "most popular baby names" are all over the internet, hell, we're no stranger to posting them! But while these are nice to know, it's also good to see what you should avoid. 

Nameberry has released a new study revealing the most common names of criminals that you might want to stay away from.

These names are, according to research, the most common names of murderers:

- Allan 

- Harold

- Russell

- Daniel

- Justin

And these are the male names most likely to live a life of crime (according to the most common names in prisons):

- Johnny

- Randy

- Bobby

- Willie

- Terry

- Billy

- Scott

- Kyle

- Joshua

- Jeremy

- Jesse

- Lawrence

- Juan

While females are less likely to commit crimes, these are the most common for the lady criminals:

- Melissa

- Theresa

These names obviously don't effect whether your child will become a criminal, but is it really worth the risk?
