Riot's getting real lazy with these champion names.

That was probably Zed's name during development.

Vi, Nami, Zed, Elise, Kha'Zix, Syndra, Rengar, Diana, Zyra, Jayce.

Last 10 champions. I honestly can't see anything common or lazy with them, besides Zed or Vi. These names are original and seem to be fine.

You leave Final Fantasy 6 out of this!

I disagree! Nami means wave in Japanese, and Diana's name is even more detailed:

Diana is the roman equivalent of the Greek God Artemis, whose brother was Apollo, goddess of the sun. Artemis was not goddess of the moon (That was Selene) but the hunt.

Still, its an obvious reference to how she is the opposite of Apollo, the sun (leona)

Because literally no thought was put into the names.

A Riot employee sat in front of his desk, yelled "IKABALURENGAR" and thought "rengar stuck the best"
