If you live in a big city or even work in one, you've probably seen some interesting wifi names in your time when you connect.

Tell your wifi love her?

ha, this is a funny question.

Mine is "searching...", previous ones of "mum, click this", and "police surveillance van" are also fun.



"Searching ..." is such a power move

Police Surveillance Van is probably my favourite :D


There used to be one in my old neighborhood named "Magic Mike".

And I was going for a drive yesterday and can across one named "FinalRestingPlace". I'm guessing it was a cemetery. ๐Ÿ‘€


I like 'Martin Router King' and once saw 'Gulaschkanone' that's German and stands for 'Goulash canon'


It was WinterIsComing for a bit. Just renamed it to Entertainment720. My phone's hotspot has been many things. NSA Surveillance Van #6, Drop It Like it's Hotspot ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿš€ Launch Sequence Initiated (you can use emojis in the wifi name), Nโˆ€หฅ สŽW ษŸษŸO ส‡วืค Currently it's Theres no place like


One may not render properly but it's Get Off My Lan but upside down and backwards. From here


I've always thought it was kinda clunky using non-ASCII characters to type things umop apisdn.


Please don't ask this as there's a list of these names with their actual location ๐Ÿ˜… see


Currently it's 'It hurts when IP' and the guest network is named 'Bill Wi the science Fi' :D


Don't know if they are funny or stupid, but people are using these in my neighbourhood:
"FBI Surveillance Van #007"
"Connection Timed Out"
"Go Get Your Own Wifi"

*Then there are some guys who simply use their phone numbers...


the internets is my home and my hotspot is var wifi = 'true';


in his third university year, at their digs my son and his flatmates had


so for a little while at home here we used
tellmywifiloveher (3G)
tellmyhubilovehim (5G).

We've gone back to manufacturers default, because someone from an Eastern European Secret Service convinced us with the reasons not to stand out


In my school when we have huge meetings , people just start discussions using wifi hotspots, we end up with something like:
-yall agree with this?
-the lavatory is in need of repair
-who took my bike
-get a better bike
-guys that lavatory

Funniest thing you ever saw ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


Mine is TP-Link_4178 and it came with the box ๐Ÿ˜


My Lastname and House lol.

Egwuenu's House

I know not so good with naming things ๐Ÿ˜†


Super useful when you have friends come over who need to connect though!


You can make their life easier by sticking a QR! Hereโ€™s a generator I made:

Also, my WiFiโ€™s name is HP-Print-XX-6318. Might ward-off people thinking itโ€™s just a printer intranet.


That is such a cute name for a cat ... and wifi :D


Well, mine is quite simple kushal_fbtmd, but once I found airport_ from my house; there is no airport near my house ๐Ÿ˜‰


You might have found an apple user. Apple calls their wireless access points "AirPort".


Kind of like finding 'anonymous white van' outside your house


My parental Home is in a remote location and getting a dedicated fibre line to my place was costly enough. There's also a FUP, so the name is "CostlyInternetNotForFree", just to offend neighbours who might be tempted to use the new Fibre in the block.


I got two, Potato-Fi and Bumblebee, very random :P


Blippi, my 6 year old named it. I thought he made it up at the time. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


I had to google what Blippi was, adorable and completely understandable that your 6 year old picked it :D


โ€œInternet uit een doosjeโ€, which is Dutch for โ€œInternet from a boxโ€.
And therefore weโ€™ve used โ€œInternet zonder draadjeโ€ what means โ€œInternet without a wireโ€.



Funniest that I've seen: "404 WiFi not found"


Mine is Zoidberg, and the name of my router is Fry ๐Ÿ‘Œ


I've three networks at home:

  • 404 Wi-Fi Not Found
  • 400 Bad Request
  • 401 Authorization Required

You should switch one to 402 Payment Required


my one of favorite "1 Mbps Wifi Plan" no one will try to hack.


A wifi of ice & fire ๐ŸงŠ๐Ÿ”ฅ


Mine is WineNot I never thought about adding emoji ๐Ÿท


Mine is "Intersect" because I'm a huge fan of Chuck (it was the name of a server full of info about everything and everyone that all organizations wanted to own). My brother named his "Skynet".


At first sight, I thought it is written Wife instead of wifi.
BTW my wifi's name is "Ramazan Mubarak"
