Okay guys I have an issue, I had a smurf account under the name "Genji" but then I seem to log into that account it's asking me to choose a new summoner name, why is this happening, I like the name thats why I chose it, whats the reason its being asked to be changed?

Riot obviously got reports complaining about your name being offensive etc... Send a support ticket maybe it was a mistake but if not you will just have to suck it up and change it.

That can happen? It's not even an offensive name?

Yes it can happen. Also that's why I said it could be a mistake. Send a support ticket and ask.

If you hadn't used the account for ages and it was low enough level someone else might have petitioned to use the name and gotten it.
