When are you going to rename Volibear? I think Bjorn, Ragnar, Russ or Asgeir would all be good choices.

You didn't name Sejuani Pigrida.

Also, I like Nami.

Dunno, I know DIsney is more prolific but don't really care. The name Nami still bugs me on this champ for some reason. And I've never even seen One Piece or, really, much anime for the past several years, but its still popular enough for me to be aware of it.


Disney is also infamous for suing the **** out of people for any perceived infringement.

You could have just called her Neris Agan.

Even though Zileas was kidding, Disney is one of the most notoriously litigious and vindictive companies in the entire world, while Shonen Jump are generally pretty laid back. Besides, it's almost impossible to bring suit against someone for their character having the same name as yours (as long as there aren't numerous other similarities)... unless you happen to be raging a-holes with billions of dollars to spend burying people in legal fees like Disney.

*woosh* And it sails right over your head.

At least Riot finally broke the female name trend of: Diana, Zyra and Syndra.

Could we request a champion that is built specifically to troll Morello at some point in the future? Or is that champion already Soraka.

So a reference to Ariel is no go because it's Disney, but directly taking Nami as a name from One Piece is okay? Not that it particularly bothers me, but it's just a little confusing how it's fine how direct a name like Nami is while Romnariel is more subtle about it. Don't get me wrong, I'm fine with either, just baffled. More importantly...


What if I told you that Ariel is also a common real world name and NOT invented by Disney? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ariel_%28given_name%29)

Hate to break it to you, but Nami is a really stupid name for a champ in any way associated with the ocean. It's not a common name like Annie or Diana, but it's already engrained in the public consciousness as the pirate chick from One Piece.

I can't believe that never occurred to you.
