    As kids, many of us have daydreamed about what nicknames we'd like to be called. "The Dude", perhaps, or "Scar", maybe - anything is possible in the world of your imagination, after all... but there's no way we'd actually do anything about it.So it's with grudging respect that we bring to you the news that a 23-year-old American man who used to go by the name of Tyler Gold has now forgone the whole nickname malarky and legally changed 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.What this means, of course, is that with just a little bit of legal back-and-forth, a Tyrannosaurus Rex now roams the earth - but whether he'll pull his wrists up to his chest all the time remains to be seen. Fingers crossed, eh?And for another extraordinary naming story, head this way to meet everyone's favourite criminal, Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop.

    Watch as everybody calls him "Ty" which is a complete normal name. But beeing called Mr. Rex would sound kind of funny/cool

    I wonder what his girlfriend would say to him:

    "Is that a T-Rex in your pants or are you happy to see me?"

    Would be more fitting if he had short, stubby arms.

    Are you saying "Ty Rex" isn't also an incredible name?

    At the end of Monday’s hearing, Gold’s name was officially changed to Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold.

    I wonder what his girlfriend would say to him:

    "Is that a T-Rex in your pants or are you happy to see me?"

    "more like yep your "arm" sure is as long as a t-rex's arm."

    or
    "I'm going out for drinks"
    "with who, that triceratops?!"
    "at least he knows how to use his horn"
