stealing quil's thread because his other one died lol

Many people are very unique when it comes to naming their wifi, to identify their networks as well as to personalize. However, around my neighborhood, I've seen very silly ones like "getyerownwifib****" and "Five Dollar Internet."

So, PC! What did you name your wi-fi?

Our Wifi name used to be our last name, but I changed it to The Elder Wand yesterday. :)

Why does everyone change their Wi-Fi name to things that are related to Harry Potter? Hmmph. I just changed mine to The Quibbler so I won't get left behind.

It's our last name. I remember someone in my old neighborhood having their name as "DontStealThis" or something like that.

Because Harry Potter is amazing, of course! I should have named mine to The Quibbler instead... Luna is my favorite.

Our wifi name is just the dumb default name verizon gave us when we got FIOS. :(
I want to name it to "getyourownwifi" though.

Well, our wireless router died a couple weeks ago, so I got to set ours up this time, since my brother and I are the only ones that use the wireless. I ended up naming our network "n0s0up4u". Certainly stands out among the generic ones in my area.

My brother insisted on naming our network Drizdar, so that is what we have it named. I think it's simply a name that he came up that is original so it is never taken whenever he uses it somewhere. Or something along those lines I'm not sure.

Since I'm at uni I have no control over the wi-fi names, so I'm just stuck with EdgeNet.
At home though my parents just got a new router so I'm planning on changing it to something awesome like YoureWalkRightThroughMe or Pingu or something :D

My main Router is Luna, it stands out as the only WPA2e secured router, which is odd since I'm surrounded by business, couple that with the 25 Character Passcode/phrase and it's the most secure thing in the neighborhood. 0.o;
I also have a simple router I plug in when I want to use my DSs, It's name is (oYo).(<-hover)

I named my portable Android AP ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ), so whenever I want to use Wi-Fi with DS games, it shows that.

Since I'm the one managing the wireless set-up at home, I got to name the way I wanted. Called it "GeoWeb" for fun, as I'm studying to become a Geologist. ;3 It's not that original, but certainly more original than the other ones my laptop picks up.

Mine is "Mi15a", because I needed to make my sister think that we don't have any wifi and I'm using my phone's portable hot-spot. Little had she noticed that it's always on, even when I've got my phone and am away from the house.
I'm not doing it because I'm a bad person. I'm doing it because I pay for the damn thing and she's a biiiiitch.

Our Wi-Fi name is Dragon'sLair. It's my father's pick, but back at my old house it was NTTC.WiFi (there's a story behind that). It didn't matter since we were one of three houses out literally in the middle of nowhere, and the other two occupied by old people... ;P

Our wi-fi name is just the default one (DIR-015, I believe), just because we never bothered to change it. I did pick up a wi-fi signal today while I was driving by an apartment named "RubySapphireEmerald," which I thought was pretty cool, and it reminded me of this thread.

I use to have my WiFi SSID set to 'Derpy' but when I was experiencing some network issues my friends kindly pointed out that having that as the name of my network was just asking for trouble. So I changed it to 'IJDWWW'
