Rex is latin for "King"

As Will said a moment ago, Rex is Latin for "King" and it was a dog name a LONG time before it was used for the dinosaur -- in fact, Disney's choice of the name was a play on the fact that Rex is a very common dog name and the fact that he is a T. Rex.

There was a comic book in the 50's called Rex the Wonder Dog, and years before that there was a canine actor, a border collie who went by the same name, who was acting as early as 1925.

I'm still hunting around on the Internet for older references to dogs named Rex, but I've heard from a history buff that ancient Romans started using Rex as a dog name, as a symbol of pride in their Republic. Still looking for a citation for that one, but yeah... Rex means king in Latin, and it's been a movie dog name way longer than Toy Story.
