    And now, a word from our sponsor.

    A crafty young bard named McMahon,
    whose poetry never would scan,
    once said, with a pause,
    “It's probably because
    I'm always trying to cram as many extra syllables into the last line as I possibly can.”

    Their other two big hits you might have heard before are Self Esteem and Why don't you get a job?. Not as artsy/trippy/experimental on the clip as The Kids, music style wise pretty similar to Pretty Fly.

    No real funny wifi names with those though.

    Really, I think that just coming up with any phrase which is amusing to you will work out well enough. I'm assuming you want something witty or punny, since "Do Your Homework First" might be your first thought anyways.

    My family uses scifi computer names for our wifis. When I was younger, my home wifi was called GLaDOS. My dad's wifi is called EPICAC. Mine was called Joshua for a bit, then when I got a new router, I named it Very Little Gravitas Indeed.

    A friend of mine named it "Rohan" and was delighted when he one day noticed a neighbour had renamed his to "Gondor".
    In university, our wifi had the default name, but we did set the password to "They'reTakingTheHobbitsToIsengard". Which is over 160 bits of entropy, if I remember correctly...

    One of our neighbors has named their wifi "viruswarning", but aside from that there is a sad lack of creative network naming in my neighborhood.

    Mine was Holodeck #6 for a while.

    My preference is a name that is associated in my mind with a specific word or phrase that can be used as a password. The connection shouldn't be based on popular culture, but some incident in your own past.

    This is correct; passwords for example should not be Personal, that's the standard advice. The trick of course is to make them personal to you but not to anyone else. That old trick of children's names or pet names or... fine. But can they guess the name of the first lego model you paid for with your own money as a kid? Can they guess the breed of the horse that your grandmother's neighbour had that he let you ride on when you were six? Etc.

    Yup. That makes "6thgradecamp" or "2ndgradeteacher" or "Scoutmaster" good names for a wifi. Because you will never forget the associated password.

    My mother's wifi has a name that gives the password to all her children - and nobody else.
