I've literally tried every name and even have put random gibberish and nothing seems to work.

I always get one of the following:

"name is taken"

"name is invalid"

"unable to save your summoner"

Is this a known issue? I've even tried repairing my LoL install and nothing has worked so far.

I'm having the exact same problem man... every name I try gives me the error 'unable to save your summoner'... It's kind of pissing me off because, before, I could at least play, even if people probably took me for a bot. Now I can't even play the game...

You will want to submit a ticket to Player Support for a name, http://support.leagueoflegends.com

This will also be passed on for investigation.

I'm confused why I lost my name in the first place - I have only been gone a few months and my account and summoner name was around for 2+ Seasons.

From checking the name was cleared out during the name clean-up process. Normally you would be able to pick a new name yourself, but it appears there is an issue with the account and it will require Player Support to manually assign the name.

So hold tight on the ticket and they will get you squared away.

Yeah, was gonna say... how long do I have to wait for something as simple as a name change? I can't play the game because of that. If they really need to do it manually, then get someone - anyone - to take, what, 5 minutes? Ask me what name I want then change it...
