League of Legends baby names for girls
Who: Xayah is a Lhotlan Vastayan who travels Ionia on a crusade to ensure her people’s survival and independence. After meeting and getting into a relationship with Rakan, both travel Ionia to preserve Ionia’s natural magic from being controlled by humans.
Origin: The name seems similar to the Tibetan name Zayah
Meaning: a victorious woman
Xayah’s name was originally “Xaya.” The name made it through the normal localization process, but the team later found out it’s the medical word for testicles in Azerbaijani, a language spoken in the country Azerbaijan. “I ran ‘Xaya’ through an Google image search, and sure enough, there was a formal diagram,” says FauxSchizzle. “I was like, ‘Well… this isn’t ideal.’” Xaya was changed to “Xayah,” and all was good in the world.
Who: All who encounter Illaoi are struck by her presence. An intense woman, the priestess is fully committed to the experience of living. She takes what she wants, destroys what she hates, and revels in everything she loves.
Origin: combination of Polynesian, ancient Australian, and ancient Greek languages, along with Hawaiian and Latin.
Meaning: One of the goals for Illaoi’s name was for it to sound exotic—which isn’t usually the intention—but because Illaoi is from a faraway island nation in Runeterra, it made sense for her character.
Rank: Out of 5,933,561 records in the U.S. Social Security Administration public data, the first name Illaoi was not present. It is possible the name you are searching for has less than five occurrences per year.
Who: Quinn is an elite ranger-knight of Demacia, who undertakes dangerous missions deep in enemy territory.

Who: ‘The night hunter’ Shauna Vayne is a deadly, remorseless Demacian monster hunter, who has dedicated her life to finding and destroying the demon that murdered her family.
Origin: Vayne or slight variations of Vayne are seen in the origins of German
