Ever wondered why you're so clumsy? No matter what you do, you're always bumping into something/dropping whatever you're holding/tripping on a non-existent step.

And when it comes to dropping your phone, that's another thing entirely. You probably couldn't count on two hands the number of times you've had to get your smashed screen repaired.

But according to a new study, if your name appears on this list then you're more likely to be clumsy. So it's technically not your fault.

As reported by Her.ie, research by the phone repair company iSmash showed that these people are more likely to accidentally break their phone.

So who are the people with butter fingers?

Apparently, James and Sarah top the list, with David, Paul, Emma and Laura not far behind.

Founder of iSmash, Julian Shovlin, said: 'We carried out the research to see if there was any correlation between names and phone breakages, with the results suggesting that certain names have less luck than others.

'Damaging your phone is always inconvenient and if your name is on the list, I would suggest buying a case to help save you from future breakages.

'Thankfully, if you do break your device, there are trusted stores out there that can get your device repaired swiftly and safely, leaving you with minimal downtime, no matter how clumsy you are.'

So the next time someone mocks you for your shattered screen, just tell them it's totally down to your name.

If your name doesn't appear on this list, then you're just really clumsy. Sorry.
