How much GNU software is required before it has to have the GNU moniker?

If my machine uses the Linux kernel is mostly busybox instead of
coreutils/textutils/shutils do I have to keep using GNU/Linux?

If I use a BSD kernel with mostly GNU software, do I have to call it
GNU/BSD?  (Something I'd find very amusing, by the way.)
