My name is Tyrannosaurus Rex - level 2, A12
Some people are born with one name but they change it during their life. There are different reasons for the change. Usually they simply don’t like their name and want to change it. Some people change their names because they hate their family and they don’t want to have the same name as some members of their family.
Some names have difficult pronunciation or spelling. That can be a reason for the change too.
One showman from the USA changed his name to Tyrannosaurus Rex. His real name was Joseph Gold. It is not a bad name, but he says that Tyrannosaurs Rex is better and people will remember him more with this name. So he changed his name for a better job.
He had to ask a judge if it was OK. The judge said that it was OK. So Joseph Gold is now Tyrannosaurus Rex.
You can see a real Tyrannosaurus Rex in the video.
