It seems there's a bit of a cult around this. There's a lot of stuff on the interweb if you google it, e.g.

http://shopping.yahoo.com/blogs/digital-crave/top-25-funny-wi-fi-names-200322177.html

Until recently I had 'CIA Surveillance'. Currently I have ' kim.dotcom Secret New Startup'. Juvenile I know but a bit of fun.

Now thinking of changing to '[Streetname] Bordello, Massage and Escorts'. Just for the amusement of the neighbours.

I have had "FBI safe house" for about four years now, and about a year ago I renamed the old mans to "get off my wifi"

At my inlaws I can see "pretty fly for a wifi"

My routers over the years have been named after moons and planets. I've been through Titan, Triton, Iapetus and now have Ganymede (wifi), Enceladus (Apple TV), Phobos (Airport Express).

Cheers,
Joseph

I tried javascript in mine hoping to cause something to happen when a web based device scanned for it. Both I tried correctly sanitized it before display :(

I'm boring; mine's just Behodar.

From work I can see "White Island Hotspot". I know that RF travels well over sea but 50 km is just ridiculous :P

I have "Quick look over there --->>>" and "Kiwi Street Free Wifi"

When I used to use my Mifi on the train it was "Tranzmetro Free Wifi - Trial" was a great laugh hearing peoples reaction when they found it broadcasting.

The main router has "Starbucks Free WiFi" for theirs, which of course is protected. Mine has "We can hear you having sex".

I love seeing ones impersonating free wifi AP's. Especially when they're protected.
