How To Change League of Legends Name?

Are you looking for how to change the League of Legends name? If yes, then this article is for you.

Not every LOL player is lucky enough to get the right name for themselves from the start. Sometimes, due to the adrenaline rush, players set their name in a hurry at the beginning, only to regret it afterward.

If you are one of the players who want to change the League of legends in-game name, we got you covered.

Is My Riot Account Name And My Summoner Name The Same?

Well, the short answer to this question is no.

Your Riot Account name is the credential you use to log into your Riot account, both in-client and on the website. This name is visible to no one other than you. Hence, it is necessary to keep it private. Also, this name must be globally unique.

Now, your Summoner name is your in-game name different from your Riot account game. Your Summoner name is visible to your friends and other players in the game. 

Unlike your Riot Account username, you can change your Summoner Name whenever you like. Changing this name won’t affect your username/Riot account name in any way.

Avoid The Names That May Contain Potential:

  • Obscenity
  • Hatred
  • Hate messages
  • Vulgarities
  • Profanity

If the chosen name reflects any of the above points and does not meet the League of Legends’ requirements, the value (Blue Essence or RP) used to purchase the name won’t be returned, so it’s a one-way road most of the time. Choose a good name!

How To Change Your Name In The League of Legends (LOL)?

Before changing your name, make sure you have either of any two in-game things listed below:

13,900 Blue Essence
  1. 1300 RP
  2. 13,900 Blue Essence

The Process:

  • Log into your League of Legends account.
  • Then go to the in-game “Store” area.
  • Then click on the “Account” button. (It’s a gift box icon).
  • On the next page, select “Summoner Rename.”
  • Now, fill in the new name in the name box and proceed to check it.
  • If the name is available, you’ll need either 1300 RP or 13,900 Blue Essence.
  • After that, the in-game client will restart, and you will be able to see your new name. After that

The later stages of the game-changing your name frequently are not a great practice since other players already remember you by your older name, which had experienced all the glory, victories, defeats, and witnessed the greatest matches.
