None of the boys called the sow's head on the stick the 'Lord of the Flies.' It was only referred to by this name by the narrator, during the description of Simon standing before the sow's head on the stick and the narrator states, "... in front of Simon, the Lord of the Flies hung on his stick and grinned." As a sow is female the use of the word 'his' is an interesting choice.
