when I started playing lol, I - for whatever reason - didnt use my awesome
nick i use everywhere, instead I thought of something new.
Now I really would want to Change that, but after some time I made a
smurf to Play with friends who are new to the game and used my real nick there.
I could talk myself into paying for 1 namechange, but 2 would be too much.
Is it possible to delete my old account?
You could send a ticket to Riot Support and ask them to do that.

That should do it, just make sure you ask them if your name becomes available after you've done it so that you don't assume it is and pay for a name change in vain.
