Many people have a lot to consider when it comes to baby names — upkeeping family traditions, making the name unique, making sure it doesn’t remind them of the 3rd-grade bully, and so on. Parents may want to add to that list of considerations some new data from Uplift Legal Funding, which highlighted the clumsiest names in America.
Uplift Legal Funding is a lawsuit loan-funding service. Using internal data on personal injury claims involving slips, trips, and falls, they identified the most accident-prone names in America.

Uplift Legal Funding also determined that women are more than a third (37%) more likely to cause injury from falling over than their male counterparts. Men are also 23% more likely to have an accident in their home than anywhere else.
Jared Stern, the owner of Uplift Legal Funding, said through a press release, “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!”
