ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Don’t you have to defeat the ghost of Jim Morrison in single combat to be crowned the lizard king?
wait a minute.
I hope he has an appropriate tattoo to go with it.
Tyler Gold is a pretty cool name – a lot cooler than, say, Derek Walsh. But Tyrannosaurus Rex Gold is over-egging the cake a little. If anyone ever asks, “Wow, how did you get such a cool name?”, his answer: “I gave it to myself and submitted the appropriate paperwork to the government” will remove any trace of cool the name might have given him.
Derek Walsh is a great name – much better than, say, Gabriel Nagmay.
That’s an awesome name. Your first name is Gay and your surname is an anagram of “gay man”. As long as you’re gay, that’s the coolest name you could have.
“…your surname is an anagram of gay man”
I never noticed that. My mind is blown…
Now, I kind of wish that I was gay.
You can put a pretty good spin on the filing cost, though: They don’t call me Tyrannosaurus Rex for nothing.
I don’t agree that Tyler Gold is a cool name. I guess I just don’t like the name “Tyler” – so I can empathize with him for changing it to T-Rex. Gold could be a cool last name if paired with the right first name.
Unfortunately, Tyrannosaurus Rex Joseph Gold doesn’t really work either. T-Rex Gold, maybe.
Suggestions if he has kids:
Not ‘Cash 4 Gold’ ?
I know a guy who had his name changed to Captain Hook Popemobile McLain
Now he needs to find a lovely lady named Dromiceiomimus to hit on/discuss linguistics with.
But then Satan might start talking to him about videogames.
Conveniently, people can still call him “Ty” (if they originally did, and he’s cool with it).
Name translated: Tyrant lizard king increases gold.
