You gotta hand it to humans--find an outlet to be funny and creative, and they'll find it.
When wireless companies allowed you to start creating your own funny wifi names, creatives took the bait.
Here were some of those names.
A Little Too Telling
"Crack Shack" which wasn't exactly creative but we later found out that the owners were arrested for selling drugs.
I'm All Signals
My younger brother set his mobile hotspot to "Hot Singles in Your Area" and I'm never gonna get over it.
Confusing The Masses
We're not allowed to have our own routers on campus, so I named mine AT&T Mobile Hotspot.
"Rebellious Amish Family"
I install internet etc. for a living.
Best one I ever came up with was for the DeltaPhi sorority, DeltaWiPhi, they loved it.
For The Pass
My favorite is "it's on the back of the router"
For the longest time, I had my phones hotspot name as 'Police Surveillance Tricycle'.
Turns out, its a good way to get some people paranoid and have others amused over the whole thing when having it active during classes.
Click Right On Here!
One of my son's (probably about 12 or 13 at the time) friend's father set added a Wi-Fi channel named "Free Internet Porn" when his son had a birthday sleep-over. The father then sat outside the area where they were sleeping and listened to them spend hours trying to figure out how to connect. My son called me that night asking how to connect to a Wi-Fi channel when you don't know the password because his friend forgot their password. I told him the only way was to guess. Evidently it kept them busy and out of trouble all night!

Hilarious when anyone asked him how to get on his WiFi. It was like a vaudeville routine.

Grandma's Got Jokes
When my grandma was getting her WiFi set up, we asked her what she'd say to people who asked for her WiFi. She said that she would tell them to "Go to Hell", so that's now her password. So whenever people ask for the WiFi password, she tells them, "Go to Hell".
Guidin' The Boomers
My favorite was, "Mom, click here for internet".
It's The Name And Pass
i was in the back of a bus and the wifi name was "Say Chicken Nuggets"
I yelled "CHICKEN NUGGETS!" to the front of the bus. Someone replied "NO SPACES!"
i didn't get it at first but after like 5 minutes i was like "wait...", put in "chickennuggets" for the password and i was in
