YORK, Neb.-A 23-year-old Nebraska man has legally become Tyrannosaurus Rex.

The New York Times reported the man entered the York County courtroom as Tyler Gold and left it with the moniker of Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold.

Gold said in his public filing for the change that the dinosaur's name is cooler.

Judge Alan Gless asked Gold whether he wanted a new name so he could hide from creditors or law enforcement. Gold said no.
