How to change summoner name in LOL

Have you ever faced the desire to rebrand in League of Legends? Do you crave a refreshing change to your 'Summoner' name, but find yourself unsure on how to do it? We're here to clear the fog and provide you with a practical guide to help you easily change your display name or Riot ID in League of Legends. 

Can you change both Riot Account and 'Summoner' Name?

These terms are often used interchangeably, causing quite a bit of doubt among players, but once you understand the uses of both, everything will make more sense.

The Riot account username, which is also your login name, is your unique identifier connecting you to the game. It's kept hidden from other players to keep your account secure, giving you an added layer of privacy.

So, what about your 'Summoner' Name then? Here's where the real excitement begins. Your 'Summoner' Name is your public name—the title that friends and foes alike recognize you by within the League of Legends community. 

Does this tale sound familiar? Remember when you first started playing, and a prompt sparked you to enter a name? Yes, that was the birth of your 'Summoner' Name! But, as the narrative of your gaming journey unfolds, you might feel the need to alter how you're recognized in LoL. Exactly how do you change your 'Summoner' Name? 

Follow these Steps to Change your 'Summoner' Name
