Yes, you are indeed right about _Tianchisaurus_ being formerly named 
"Jurassosaurus" as well as the part about the species name, 
"nedegoatpeferima".  The name was made by taking the first 2 letters 
of each the last name of each cast member.  Here's a list:

Sam NEill
Laura DErn
Jeff GOldblum
Sir Richard ATtenborough
Bob PEck
Marin FErrero
Ariana RIchards
Joseph MAzzello

the 3 (important) cast members they left out were Samuel L. Jackson, 
B. D. Wong, and Wayne Knight.
