A 23-year-old American man who used to go by the name of Tyler Gold has now decided to rage against the machine and legally change his name to ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex’.
Mr. Gold – now Mr. Rex – went to York County Courthouse in Nebraska to change his name “because the (T-Rex designation) is cooler,” reports The New York Times. “Also, as an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognisable.”
Judge Alan Gless was keen to double check on whether he was trying to avoid either the law or creditors, but Mr. Rex said no, he wasn’t.
So, the records can now state that Tyrannosaurus Rex is alive.
