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

The York News-Times reports (http://bit.ly/JYWFYf ) that the man entered the York County courtroom on Monday as Tyler Gold and left
it with the moniker Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold.

Gold says in his public filing for the change that the dinosaur's name is cooler. He says that "as an entrepreneur, name recognition is important and the new name is more recognizable." The newspaper report does not describe his line of business.

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.
