A man by the name of Tyler Gold went before a judge to change his name. It happens all the time, so why does this make the news? Well, for one, he requested to change his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Insane, right? Or possibly a stroke of genius. He reasoned that not only is the name more cool, but since he’s an entrepreneur, it’s important to have name recognition. And let’s face it, Tyrannosaurus Rex is much more memorable than Tyler.

By the end of the court hearing, Tyler had his name successfully and legally changed to Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold.

Congratulations to the man. I hope he lives up to the name and dominates what ever niche he’s after.
