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.

Vi: Roman Numeral
Nami: The name of a character in One Piece and a common name for Japanese restaurants.
Zed: Thats how we pronounce Z in Canada.
Elise: THIS IS A COMMON NAME. How do you not find that lazy? They took Elise instead of Priscilla, The Spider Queen.
Kha'Zix: This is one of their combination of two words name. Slightly creative.
Syndra: Creative again. Most creative on this list.
Rengar: Riot had a surge of creativity here. Still, look at the names before these 3.
Diana: Really? This is another common woman's name. Don't even try to tell me Diana is creative.
Zyra:Hey, another good name. However, they could've got it from Zira from The Lion King.
Jayce: Not-very-common male name. This is the name of a secondary character in a book series called The Mortal Instruments. Not creative at all.

So 4/10 of those were creative. Most were just regular names or copies of names that are easily generated by a walk around the neighborhood at Riot HQ.

(From Wikipedia)

In Roman mythology, Diana (lt. "heavenly" or "divine&quot was the goddess of the hunt, the moon and birthing, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and having the power to talk to and control animals. She was equated with the Greek goddess Artemis, though she had an independent origin in Italy. Diana was worshipped in ancient Roman religion and is revered in Roman Neopaganism and Stregheria. Dianic Wicca, a largely feminist form of the practice, is named for her. Diana was known to be the virgin goddess of childbirth and women. She was one of the three maiden goddesses, Diana, Minerva and Vesta, who swore never to marry.

Oak groves were especially sacred to her. According to mythology, Diana was born with her twin brother Apollo on the island of Delos, daughter of Jupiter and Latona. Diana made up a triad with two other Roman deities: Egeria the water nymph, her servant and assistant midwife; and Virbius, the woodland god.


are you agreeing or disagreeing with me?

Why nothing cool like Charlemagne, Brutus, Bartholomew, Francois, etc?

Wouldn't be surprised of next champion was named U.

I guess they need to keep the name simple since Phreak's pronounciation is atrocious.
"LeBlenrrrr."
"Wu-Kuunununng."
