Dinosaur-mad businessman takes T-Rex moniker09/05/2012 - 18:50:02
A US businessman has changed his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The 23-year-old man – who was formerly known as Tyler Gold – opted to legally change his moniker because he believes the dinosaur name is much "cooler" and "more recognisable" than his old title.
He is quoted by the York News-Times as saying: "As an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognisable".
When changing his name Gold – whose full moniker is now Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold – was asked whether he was choosing a different name to hide from creditors, but he said those factors were nothing to do with his decision.
