    what is a bad name?

    What do you say in English the underline sentence?

    I don't want to get a bad name, you know, the student who's always running to the professor when something's wrong.

    Thank you for your reply.

    "Teacher's pet" may be what you are looking for. Or "tattletale." I'm not sure exactly what you mean.

    A bad name is a bad reputation.
