I have to say, first and foremost, this list has to be bull-bleep. It still blows my wife's mind how clumsy I am. I'm constantly running into things and falling over. Do you ever get ready for bed at night and are surprised by a new bruise or cut that you don't remember getting? Yeah, that's almost a daily occurrence for me.

Uplift Legal Funding recently published some new data that gives the 10 names that are most clumsy for men and women. Here are the lists.


  1. Kyle
  2. Blake
  3. Brian
  4. Ryan
  5. Daniel
  6. Mark
  7. Bob
  8. Samuel
  9. William
  10. James


  1. Hailey
  2. Taylor
  3. Linda
  4. Barbara
  5. Kimberley
  6. Mary
  7. Angela
  8. Deborah
  9. Gabrielle
  10. Louise

Do you see Brandon anywhere on that list? Nope. What about another person who is incredibly clumsy. Like the kind of person who slams his head into brick walls or breaks his foot while taking too many dog tranquilizer. Buzz? Not there. Or Buzz's real name? Not there either.

So what was the criteria for this 'data?' People randomly filling out a form that asked them who is clumsy? No, here is what they said they took into account:

Names were ranked by the frequency of them appearing when reviewing cases that involved the claimant encountering an incident causing personal injuries, such as slips, trips and falls in the workplace and at home or in a public setting.

Jared Stern, who owns Uplift Legal Funding said of the findings:

With this link between us as people and the names we are given, we thought that it would be interesting to take our data and find out which names are associated with those who are more accident prone – I hope for all the Kyles and Haileys out there, the research isn’t completely accurate!
