Following in the steps of the highly intellectual Meta World Peace and Ochocinco, a man has taken the bold steps to legally changing his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex. I wonder how small his arms are.

Tyler Gold of York, Nebraska went to court this week to have his name legally changed to Tyrannosaurus Rex. On the official court filings Tyrannosaurus stated that he wanted to change his name…

because the (T-Rex designation) is cooler. Also, as an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognizable.

He again repeated this reason in court and denied that he was having his name changed to avoid creditors or law enforcement.

I will have to agree that Tyrannosaurus is a better name than Tyler, but you would think that choosing a first name that plays into Gold would be better for an entrepreneur. “Bags of” or “Piles of” seem like viable options.

I send out my best wishes to T-Rex while hoping that he doesn’t go on a rampage through Nebraska and devour small-to-medium sized animals. If you were going to change your name what would you choose?
