    Legendary names out side of LoL

    As a college student, I work for an online retailer and I ship packages all day. Every package that's ordered through our store passes through my hands, and these are some of the names I've shipped to (first or last)


    Warwick
    Vladimir
    Lulu
    Garen

    What names have you guys come across outside of a game?

    Ashe, see it every now and then.
    The Runaway. I love my new nickname. Is there a picture of me? Does it look good?

    Warwick Avenue Tube station in London, went through it for few months.
    Had a colleague named Katarina.
    Viktor and Vladimir, both common russian (slavic?) names.

    Pal's brother has Wiktor(Read <w> like you would <v>.) for first name, quite common name in Poland.

    Elise -> Eliza, Darius -> Dariusz, Janna -> Joanna... Plenty of more ordinary names become completely normal with a tiny change.

    No one said Annie yet? I've met at least a few people named Anne/Annie over the years. Same with Diana, Corki, Eve, Fiora, Ken, and Leona. Those are all names I've seen/heard of long before I played LoL.
    Light or darkness...which do you prefer to be blinded by?

    Well, I don't find this odd, seeing as it's legal in Denmark to name girls "Ninja" and boys "Awesome". No joke.

    Anyway, I know a guy named Viktor (or.. It might be Victor). The name's quite common in Denmark.

    Diana
    Evelynn (Evelien)
    Kayle (Kaylee/Kayleegh)
    Viktor (Victor)
    Vladimir

    I know several people called Viktor and Vladimir, both are common in Slavic speaking countries.
    Also a girl I know is called Diana.

    I know Warwick is a castle in England and I've seen some people named that way. From the top of my head.

    Also Brand is obviously based of "brennen" the German word for "burn" so I come across that word occasionally when using German.

    From the top of my head, but I'm sure I could find more if I went through some list of champs or something.

    I'm quite sure you needn't have looked for the root that far. Branding = practice of burning marks on (usually animal) skin by using red-hot iron.

    Cool, I didn't know that word actually, English is not my mother language.

    Well, when I played The Walking Dead, Katja always reminded me of Katarina, the name that is.
