Taylor Momsen has revealed that she is "not quite a fan" of her band's name The Pretty Reckless.

Momsen, who is known for her role as Jenny Humphrey in Gossip Girl, formed the rock group last year as The Reckless.

Speaking to Live From Studio Five, she admitted that they were forced to change the name because of trademark problems.

She said: "I'm not quite a fan of [the name]. You'd be surprised how difficult it is to find a name that's actually trademarkable. We wanted it to be just The Reckless but we had some problems, so we added a Pretty."

The group's debut single 'Make Me Wanna Die' was featured on the soundtrack to the movie Kick-Ass.
