    • Step 4: Type your new desired name and then click on “Verify Name”. Please ensure that your nickname is between 3 and 16 characters long, and must not contain the word “Riot”, or even variations, or personal information such as your name and address. Also, impersonating a professional player is not allowed.

    Any sort of infringement that you end up passing at this stage will result in Riot Games changing the name in the future, with no chance of a refund.

    If the name is currently available, you will be notified and can spend either your Blue Essence or RP for the name change to be finalized.

    Remember that if a name deemed offensive also passes, it can be also filtered and altered later on by Riot Games, as well as in the other cases already mentioned.

    Here is what’s considered inappropriate when picking a name in League Of Legends:

    • Summoner names that suggest hate speech, swearing, or cursing, either implicitly or explicitly.
    • Most names that suggest or refer to something in historical, ethical, or political contexts.
    • Names containing insults, grotesque imagery, and strong vulgarity.

    That’s about it for this guide, by now you should be able to change your name in League Of Legends easily if you’ve followed the steps outlined above correctly.
