From Surrenderat20.com which in turn got it from these forums.

"One of the bigger discussion points of this patch was Lux's ultimate being renamed from "Finales Funkein" to "Infinite Light". Ymir, the English Community Coordinator, gave the forums a taste of the thought process behind the change:
"If we were making Lux today, we’d never name her ult ‘Finales Funkeln’ today. Here’s why:

It’s an incomprehensible in-joke that’s an obscure reference.
It’s a tip of the hat to another character’s ability from another game that’s been translated into German. This is unintelligible to most people, because they don’t get the joke. This is not pandering to the lowest common denominator – we’re talking about the vast majority of our players around the world here.

It’s hard to pronounce.
No, not just because it’s German. Once again, this isn’t about the lowest common denominator.

It doesn’t even come close to conveying what the ability does.
And Infinite Light does. Yeah, yeah, it’s not a global ability, but it's a pretty big ******* laser. A little hyperbole is just fine by us. We considered translating the name directly from German to English as “Final Spark,” but felt reference to electricity didn’t feel like Lux."
While this chunk was the meat and potatoes of the post, I'd recommend you check out the rest of it if this something you feel passionately about, as the change is live right now and I doubt we'll be seeing it reverted."

It's already been answered. Read Riot's announcements more closely.

Personally I'm very interested in seeing how Soraka's remake turns out, and how the remodeling/rerigging will affect her Divine skin.
