I came across two threads that were started 6 days apart on basically the same topic. The second thread began with post #15. I merged them (20 April 2014). Here's a story from the news thread about the nickname.

Sir Paul Mccartney In Trademark Battle

Here's the whole article

Sir Paul Mccartney is embroiled in a battle to stop a company trademarking his nickname 'MACca' for a cosmetics range.

The Beatles legend's legal team has filed an objection to a trademark application filed in London to use the name for a line of cosmetics, perfumes, hair products and soaps.

The applicant now has two months to defend the filing with the Trademark Registry in the British capital, according to U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail.

 

The article was from 26 February so the defense filing should come about a week from now, if they choose to proceed.

After reading these two (now merged into one) threads, and seeing that the nickname isn't unique to Paul, I wonder how the ruling will go.

I wonder if this is the cosmetics company all this hullabaloo was about. M.A.C. Collection Notice that the MAC in the original story is capitalized.

One bit from the interview with Ellie Goulding:

Tell me about your cats. "Lennon and Wallace—they are Bengals and they are naughty as hell! Wallace was named after William Wallace, a Scottish guerrilla campaign leader. And Lennon was named after John Lennon. But I didn’t name Lennon, the breeder did. I would have named him after George Harrison. I told you, I really love George Harrison!"

I like this person. Yes, I do. I think we would find much in common. a-hard-days-night-george-3
