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, weíd never name her ult ĎFinales Funkelní today. Hereís why:

Itís an incomprehensible in-joke thatís an obscure reference.
Itís a tip of the hat to another characterís ability from another game thatís been translated into German. This is unintelligible to most people, because they donít get the joke. This is not pandering to the lowest common denominator Ė weíre talking about the vast majority of our players around the world here.

Itís hard to pronounce.
No, not just because itís German. Once again, this isnít about the lowest common denominator.

It doesnít even come close to conveying what the ability does.
And Infinite Light does. Yeah, yeah, itís 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 ďFinal Spark,Ē but felt reference to electricity didnít 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.
