What do you name your Wi-Fi? Many people name their Wi-Fi access points to show uniqueness and to get rid of the boring WIFI1234567 default name. In my neighborhood, we have crazy names like the one in the title, and the famous "Five Dollar Internet" which is right around the corner. xD

I named mine "Destiny" because the internet is a world of destiny. It's been that way since we moved into the neighborhood, and haven't bothered changing it since.

What's everyone elses? :3

We don't have a special name for our Wi-Fi and it's just 2WIRE130 which is the stranded name it came with. Boring , I know, but I don't think anyone in my family can come up with a good name for it. If I had my own Wi-Fi, I'd probably name it after something I like such as a Pokemon or music artist.

    My home wifi is named valhalla as it follows our theme with our computers which are named THOR, ODIN, FREYJA, and BALDR. My phone's wifi hot spot is named NSA Wireless Monitoring Device. :D

    Eh, my WiFi is named Jinx, after a pet rabbit we used to have. Don't know why it was called that, probably just a family thing as we were kids and loved our rabbits. Lol. ANYWAY, to contribute something of some relevance to this topic, not about WiFi but with Bluetooth if it's turned on I like to call my device "girl in my class is a super hot babe" or "I have a crush on insert name here" for amusement when people are doing a bluetooth transfer and see it

    That's a list of the wifi spots that I'm able to pick up here around my neighborhood.. and if it isn't obvious, "FQVU4" is my SSID. It's the default one that came with the router.

        My current network is named "sl0wp0k3". Within range currently is a network called "JUST_D0_IT". Somewhat relevant, but not a WiFi name, I've named the router that sl0wp0k3 is broadcast from "Ruinous Connection", but nobody sees that except for me.

        "Other Network"

        I don't broadcast my SSID. I usually just call it tc-<location> internally.

        there's one called "baguette" around here.

        And since everything is hooked up already, we can't change ours (at least I don't know how :\) so it's just NETGEAR99-5G. ew.

        EDIT: FIGURED IT OUT. I shouldn't really change the "5G" but now the other one's "bacon".

          Mines pretty boring, just a general NETGEAR plus some numbers. There is one that I'm in range of that's called "Thunder Boomer" though.

          The one I use is just the family last name. I also have a guest network that I keep off unless I am Nintendo Zone spoofing, to which the name changes rather often (attwifi if I want a normal NZ Hotspot or Bestbuy if I wanna spoof to get the exclusive Animal Crossing DLC).

              I don't usually name my network, but I'll do it if I have to. The last time I had to name my Wi-Fi connection was when I was setting up a mobile hot spot app on my Android, haha. Since I was drinking lemonade at the time, I ended up naming it "Lemons."

              I've named it a lot of things over the years....Wayne Enterprises was one, Stark Industries was one....#TheStrugglenet was one...

              Currently, it's just LuckyTiger though.

              Right now it's the default name, which is PLDTMyDSL, but there's a lot of funny and creative Wi-Fi names in our building. There's You shall not connect (which obviously has a password), The girl with the pink laptop (I've never seen her but I hope I will!), and AWildConnectionAppeared.

                The default name for mine was Bob and it remains Bob because I'm too lazy to change it. On the plus side, it makes finding my wifi a whole lot easier because everybody else's around here has a bunch of numbers tacked on the end. Someone's is called "BTUF" and I think it's my co-worker's husband because he's notorious for telling people to ball 'til they fall.

                Mine's currently named 'tee off'. It has something to do with my family name and golf since there is a golf course located directly behind my house. 'Tee off' also means to drive a gold ball from a tee, which is, in my opinion, rather ingenious. Wonder who came up with that name (it wasn't me). Looks like my WiFi's the only one that has a fancy name around my area.

                I'm connected to Hundred Acre Woods, because I'm a Winnie the Pooh fan at heart. In the past, I've had Mt. Olympus.

                I'm normally near some version of FBI Surveillance Van too... right now my neighbor apparently uses MINENOTYOURS. haha

                'It burns when IP.' I set it up ages ago and I've completely forgotten how to change it haha. I know it's not the most creative name out there but it used to make me giggle a little when I saw it and that's what counts, right? If I could think of something better I'd happily change the name but for now it's staying as this. It'd probably just end up as 'Squirrels' or something anyway. :p
