List of Dinosaur names

There are over 1200 dinosaurs so far discovered and described by science in this list of dinosaur names. We have put them in alphabetical order to make it easier and to read. We will take a look at how a dinosaur is named and where the name came from but if you want to go to the list right away you can click on the link below.

How do Dinosaurs get there name?

The world first saw the world dinosaur in around 1841 or 1842 (no one is exactly sure of the years it was first used) and even the date has three options, July 30th, or August 2nd or 24th. However it has been been in use for about 170 years.

It was first used by Richard Owen the British Paleontologist, When he introduced the first 3 recognised dinosaurs the Megalosaurus, Iguanodon and the Hylaeosaurus to the British Association.

Dinosauria is usually said to mean Terrible lizard, and comes from both Greek (deinos) and Latin (sauruos) , but actually it was intended to mean fearfully Great in reference to their size and strength rather than any ferocious aspects they may or may have had.

What are Unofficial Dinosaurs called?

Whenever you look at a list of dinosaur names,on wikipedia, our or other site you might come across some latin words mentioned next to the name. We have the list of these and an explanation of what they mean in the list below. The information is more detailed on Wiki here.

  • Nomen nudum: means naked name. It means the dinosaur has been named and printed and published and is likely to become official, but it has not been officially classified as of yet.
  • Nomen dubium: Means dubious name and the fossil is not thought to be a separate dinosaur or can not be classified by the features present.
  • Junior synonym: Means an already classified dinosaur but the fossils are though to either a junior version of it, or a dinosaur that was previously classified as a different species and later to be found to be an existing one.
  • Nomen oblitum: Means forgotten name: A dinosaur names that has been used for 50 years.
  • Nomen manuscriptum: means manuscript name, and means the dinosaur name has been published but is not recognised by science.
  • Preoccupied name: the dinosaur has been named but then found to have been used already, so it is changed.

In the list below there are over 1270 dinosaur names, and we left out most of the categories above which account for another almost 500. With an average of 50 dinosaurs being described and classified this list of dinosaur names will surely grow

What Did They Call Dinosaurs Before 1841?

Before Richard Owen coined the term dinosauria fossils discovered would be classified as a whole range of different animals, Some were mistaken for mammal’s like Rhinos, or like elephants. They were also, in more scientific circles, known as lizards.

However, as you go further back in time then they were more often compared to dragons, which is likely where the legends came from. We have a longer article on the difference between dragons and dinosaurs here on the site as well, just follow the link.

Why Do Dinosaurs Have Two Names?

Dinosaurs are usually named by the person discovering them, and although there are rules governing the naming, (see below) there is also some creativity allowed . There is often a latin or greek meaning to their names, although in recent years with more dinosaurs being discovered around the world other languages are also being used, liek Yi Qi ( also the shortest dinosaur name) from chinese Mandarin, Khaan from Mongolian, and

A dinosaurs name is made of two parts following the international Code of zoological Nomenclature (covers all living and extinct animals and life) The first part is Capitalized however there is no rule on language.

International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature.

What is a Dinosaurs Generic Name: This is the name that the dinosaur is most commonly used by people to describe and talk about the dinosaur. For example Triceratops is actually called triceratops horridus and stegosaurus is called Stegosaurus stenops but most commonly these are known by their first names.

What is a Dinosaurs Specific name:

What is a dinosaurs binomial name: This can also be called a scientific name and is the two names together. the first name, the generic name relates to the genus the dinosaur belongs to and the second, the specific name, is the species that the dinosaur belongs to.

This is used throughout there animal kingdom, and while there might only be one Tyrannosaurus Rex species found for example, there are about 7 modern day giraffes so a way to differentiate between lifeform’s is needed.

  • Often they may describe some feature of the dinosaur like deinonychus – Terrible Claw, or a skill they thought it may have like velociraptor – Quick thief.
  • There are others that are named with a little more humor or creativity ( and you can spot some of these in the List of Dinosaur names below.) Like Dracorex hogwartsia – Dragon King of Hogwarts, or Irritator – named after black market smugglers damaged a fossil of a Brazilian spinosaurus.
  • They can also have the name of businesses, famous scientists, or personalities as well, like the Qantassaurus, or the Attenborosaurus.
  • Others like Nigersaurus, niger Lizard, or Utahraptor are named after the location they were discovered, or where it is thought the dinosaur lived all those years ago.
  • All of these ways of naming a dinosaur can be in the first or second name like Diplodocus carnegii which was named after Andrew Carnegie who donated the money for the expedition that found it.
  • All of these names must be approved by the International Commission on Zoological nomenclature. However, unless its really “out there” like Boaty McBoatface then they can get approved, for example there is a bambiraptor !
