It irks me when I sit at home, or a friends home and see default wifi names. Before we moved rural, I picked up close to 20 wifi names at the old house. all of them were trustpower-8gngng, spark-585gur5, etc etc etc.

I have always had unique wifi names and wondered what everyone else uses as their SSID's?

Agreed! I can't resist putting in random names. My 2.4ghz is "damp arm pits" and my 5ghz is "nuke my brains"

Neighbours around (I'm assuming different people) seem to have a Game of Thrones theme going on, because we have "Westeros", "Winterfell" and "Braavos".
