Have you ever wondered what your favorite champion’s real full name is? No worries, now you can know.

League of Legends currently has a stock of 166 champions. Almost every year, new champions are released. And each champion has their own unique design, lore, and gameplay mechanics.

Riot is praised for in-depth character writing. This is reflected in the individual champion lore and background stories. The care shown to champion design is exemplified by how almost every champion either has an alias, epithet, or nickname.

These names are not randomly selected either. Each name has clear ties with the respective champions’ origin, location, and the culture surrounding it. Some nicknames or aliases perfectly portray the champion’s personality. For example, Aatrox is the World Ender.

Finding all the champions’ names or aliases can be tough. That’s why in this article, names collected from various sources are incorporated.

As there is no official list from Riot Games, Reddit user u/TricolorStar has compiled a list showing all the champions’ real names. Some of the newer champions’ names are collected from fan wikis.
