When you set up an internet network with a router for your home, you often can rename it something easy to remember to distinguish your Wi-Fi network from your neighbors’. Some people go way beyond giving their network a simple name like “The Smith House.” Those people have made cool or funny Wi-Fi network names into an art form, using puns and jokes to get a chuckle out of anyone nearby—especially those looking for some free Wi-Fi. There are some things to consider before naming your Wi-Fi, though.

What should you not name your Wi-Fi?

Don’t name your Wi-Fi anything that reveals personal information, such as your address, birthday or phone number. That way, your sensitive information is protected from potential hackers and complete strangers seeking free Wi-Fi. It’s also best to not incorporate any of your common passwords into your Wi-Fi name. That being said, you can still create the best name for your Wi-Fi without revealing anything sensitive.

How do you make a funny Wi-Fi name?

Similar to crafting funny usernames and group chat names, making a funny Wi-Fi name isn’t as hard as it seems. A great way to create them is to make puns out of words related to Wi-Fi, like internet and router. Or, you could simply scroll through the 125 funny Wi-Fi network names below to get some inspiration.
