Teratophoneus: A tyrannosaur whose name translates to ‘monstrous murderer’. That’s just about the most fitting name you can give to this kind of dinosaur.
Atrociraptor: Like ‘Velociraptor’ but infinitely more evil-sounding. Suggests that this dinosaur will seriously wreck your shit.
Dracovenator: The name of this Jurassic South African theropod translates as ‘dragon hunter’. That is a badass name.
Xenoposeidon: Maybe it’s just because I grew up in the 90s, but Xs make everything more awesome. The name means ‘alien Poseidon’ (referring to another dinosaur, Sauroposeidon), so it’s sort of like a space dinosaur. Awesome.
Draconyx: The name means ‘dragon claw’, which is a big name to give a small herbivore. But it’s still awesome, as anything with ‘dragon’ in it tends to be.
Ekrixinatosaurus: The name of this theropod dinosaur means ‘explosion-born reptile’. So it’s like a Michaelbaysaurus, then. The awesomeness of its name is rivalled only by how hard it is to spell.
