Marcus Mumford wishes Mumford & Sons had a different band name

Musician Marcus Mumford has revealed that he regrets naming his band Mumford & Sons, especially now that they've hit the big time

Speaking to the NME recently, the 'Little Lion Man' sensation admitted that he never expected to become so popular or he definitely would have picked a different moniker for the group.

He said: "I definitely regret the band name. If I'd known that it was going to go this way I would have wanted to call it anything other than my last name. It's a ball-ache. We thought about changing it, but it's a bit late now."

"It all happened really fast. We have to get comfortable with that, and not say: 'F**k it, we want to be a tiny pub band'. It's an opportunity to make more music, and as long as it's about that I'm cool with it all. If we were big for any other reason then I'd be questioning it, but we're not male models, I can tell you that."
