Hommocks *

That one's still in use in Southern England, though in the singular, as in 'get out of the way, you great hommock'. It's used probably more often of a male than a female, though.
Hugely satisfying to say it is, too.

I enjoy saying it!
It's good to know it's still in use.

I do have the word 'hommock' - I probably should have added it at the same time!
It has various meanings:
- an awkward clumsy person - as you mentioned!
- a heap
- a large piece or slice
- an untidy mess

It's also used as a verb:
- to walk with a clumsy, shambling gait, to hobble
- to huddle, heap together

It's a very versatile word!
