t would definitely save a lot of time.

Who would want to waste time getting to know someone who ends up being the jerkiest of all jerks?

The now-defunct website First To Know released a list of the top 15 names of men who end up being d-bags, so you don't have to keep wondering. They based their judgment on the following criteria (note that these are just a few of those criteria):

6. Travis

7. Frank

9. Brandon

Brandon skateboarded to your apartment before the date you two had planned, and you had to end up driving. And paying the bill.

10. Mike (Michael)

Mike would be someone who was checking out the waitress right in front of you.

11. Scott

Scott was the cute guy you had a crush on years ago, and on a date, you quickly realize he's not nearly as special as you think he is.

12. Ryan

Ryan was great on the dating app, but you quickly realize how dull he is in person.

13. Eric

You actually don't get to make a date with Eric, as he allegedly keeps sleeping through your dates. 

14. Tommy

Tommy is the type of guy to have a girlfriend the whole time and not tell you until the actual date.

15. Matthew

Matthew actually seemed like a great guy, until he told you to watch what you eat and not order dessert.

Of course, this survey is purely anecdotal and based on many women's (and men's!) experiences with people with these names — not exactly science or research-based.

Nothing beats the good old-fashioned getting-to-know-you tactic to come to the conclusion that yes, they are indeed a d bag.
