David is top of the nation's bad luck league, as more men who share his name make personal injury claims than any other blokes.
Accident-prone Daves are more likely to trip and hurt themselves, pull muscles at work or cut themselves.
James, Stephen, Andrew and Chris were also in the top five unlucky guys' names, according to research by personal injury experts Edwards Hoyle.
Joanne was the unluckiest female name, followed by Emma and Clare.
The survey, spanning two years, found 1989 gave birth to the clumsiest folk, with more claims from 23-year-olds than any other age group.
Fishermen had the riskiest jobs, more likely to get hurt at work than any other trade including building, farming and trucking.
David Edwards of Edwards Hoyle said: "Any 23-year-old Davids or Joannes working as fishermen need to take care."
