This isn’t very widespread, but I have sometimes heard pachycephalosaurs (a very long name) shortened to “pachy,” which is much easier to say. If needed, micropachycephalosaurus could be shortened to micropachy or minipachy. I do think raptor is much easier to say than velociraptor, but it can also refer to any kind of dromaeosaurid.

At this point, Tyrannosaurus/T-Rex, triceratops, and stegosaurus are simple and widespread enough that I don’t think they’ll ever really need common names. But then of course, there’s the things like Sinosauropteryx, Epidexipteryx and Toujiangosaurus that may need some creative solutions.
