Common names for dinosaur finds

I was browsing through newspaper articles on dinosaur finds, and 
discovered all sorts of pen names given by the local press or by the 
dinosaur workers.

Here are some....please add to the list if you know of others.

"Big Ed" = Edmarkia rex
"surrey dinosaur" = Baryonyx walkeria
"Archie" = Archaeopteryx lithographica
"Sue", "Stan", "Scotty", "Black Beauty" = Tyrannosaurus rex
