A York man wants name recognition, so he legally changed his name.

A 23-year-old southeast Nebraska man has legally added Tyrannosaurus Rex to his name.
The man entered the York County courtroom on Monday as Tyler Gold, but now he is Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold.

Gold says in his public filing for the change that the dinosaur's name is cooler. Gold also says that  he is an entrepreneur and name recognition is important and the new name is more recognizable.     

Judge Alan Gless asked Gold at Monday's hearing whether he wanted a new name so he could hide from creditors or law enforcement. Gold said no.  Gless noted that Gold had gone through the proper legal channels for changing his name, so the judge granted Gold's request.
