Funny Wifi Names and Puns

Let's take a look at the funniest, weirdest and most hilarious wifi names we could find on the web! You wouldn't believe how creative people are when naming their wifis: Puns and humorous names, messages for the wifi owner and people who try to log in from outside, references to pop culture and outright insolent passive-aggressive notes. We collected the best names that people came up with.
