Zayn Malik and Harry Styles insist One Direction will keep their name

Harry Styles and Zayn Malik insist that One Direction will not be changing their name.

The boys were speaking out about a legal challenge from an American band with the same name.

A five-piece band from Californian has sued for damages claiming they have been using the name since November 2009.

However, when asked, the two lads told Australia's Herald Sun that nothing would change for them.

Zayn said: "We don't know (what will happen) but we're not changing our name."

Meanwhile, Harry has also revealed that he has been in touch with Taylor Swift, who he met while on tour in the US last month.

One Direction are currently on a promotional tour of Australia and New Zealand.

They have been attracting lots of female fans and when they appeared at the Logie Awards the event had to draft in some extra security.
