What did you name your wireless network?

Here are the ones within range.

I started naming mine "Terrapin Station" from back when Apple first released their wireless router -- it was shaped like one.

We have puns on our street name. Presently “Orange Ya Glad.” At the previous house it was “Smurfberry Way”

BRW, my preschooler’s favorite joke right now:
knock knock
who’s there
banana
banana who
banana you glad I didn’t say orange? HAHAHAHA
He's starting kindergarten this fall. I hope they don’t throw him out for his sense of humor

Nice. My grandson will be starting kindergarten this fall and I literally taught him that joke last weekend. His mom's job is to nurture, his dad's - to teach right from wrong... and mine: to provide a steady diet of nonsense and useless information

My question is, who do you witty people think you are confusing? My wireless is whatever name the net provider has as default. I pulled it up on my devices, clicked the first one assuming it was mine, and haven't seen the list since 3 years ago.

It's not like every morning when people wake up they have to pull up the funny names in the list and select their network for each device.

Back in the early days, when WiFi networks were rarely password protected, I'd try to deter my neighbors (or strangers driving by) from camping on mine and stealing my bandwidth by calling it "Caution -Virus Detected".

"TheBigDeal"

Inspired by my now departed orange tabby. He was quite long and tall with a giant head.

I've used it on a few routers over the years.

Mine is just the name of the wireless router I use, but I did like one of my family member's use of "FBI Van".
