Nasutoceratops is part of a group of big-bodied horned dinosaurs called ceratopsids, the same family as the Triceratops. They are members of the smaller subset of horned dinosaurs known as centrosaurines, and the Avaceratops is the closest known relative.
Nasutoceratops had a large horn above each eye, similar to many other horned dinosaurs. However, with the Nasutoceratops, the horns are particularly elongate and forward facing, which is unusual. Although centrosaurines typically have a large horn over the nose and an elaborately ornamented frill, Nasutoceratops had a low, narrow, blade-like horn above the nose and relatively simple frill.
The first part of the plant-eating dinosaur's name can be translated as the “big-nosed horned face,” in reference to its oversized nose. The second part of the full name, Nasutoceratops titusi, honors Alan Titus, Monument Paleontologist at Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, for his work in support of paleontological research there.
