According to the official 1993 Nintendo Character Guide, Yoshi is properly known as T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas. The guide also refers to Mario as "homo nintendonus". 

Since this information has never been released until now and even the biggest Yoshi fans (including me) previously only knew him as Yoshi, it's good to know, as well as a bit of a surprise to fans who thought the green dino didn't have any other names besides Yoshi.
