Recently, while I was playing Taliyah / Ziggslink outside website, I hovered over the Inventive Chemist's card art and, by reading the text that goes with the art, I found out this yordle's name was Giselle! I shared this discovery through a tweetlink outside website which got nice feedback.

Some grassroots tourneys game's casters, such as DanGG and Mah Sgarbi told me that they would begin to say the name Giselle on their castings and Mah suggested that I make an article bringing out the names of other units which aren't yet known by a great portion of the LoR players. Because I like a good challenge, I accepted the suggestion.


Some explanations

Though many known units in the game already have their names written in their cards (as it is the case with Corina, Cithria, Genevieve, Farron, Ledros and many others), the great portion of the cards have only some adjectives to describe them, as it is with even Inventive Chemist, which I talked about previously. That being the case, I opened card by card and read all of their texts, looking for unit names with unknown names. Besides that, I started to listen for the interaction among the cards themselves while I was playing, because in between one interaction and another, the cards themselves call each other by name.

The cards that didn't have their names in their texts or had interactions that revealed their names, are out of this list. The cards that already had their names written in the names of the cards themselves (by obvious reasons), were also excluded from this list, but everything else is here, so I can assure you that this is the complete list with all the unit names which aren't visible ingame.

The list is divided by regions (in alphabetic order), and the units are organized by cost order. Check it out:
