150 Funny Wi-Fi Names for Secure Silliness

Naming your Wi-Fi is important. A common name like “Linksys” or “DLink” – often the default choice – might leave guests puzzled over which network is yours. However, a name that’s too specific might invite unnecessary questions or attention. Striking the right balance between memorable, humorous, and discreet is the key. But how do you pick a Wi-Fi name that’s both funny and secure?

The Whys and Hows of Changing Your Wi-Fi Name

Initially, when you set up your network, it will likely bear the name of the wireless router company. Moreover, most networks default to “open,” meaning anyone within range can access them. Changing your Wi-Fi name, also known as the SSID (Service Set Identifier), and securing your network are crucial steps in maintaining your online privacy.

How to Change Your Wi-Fi Name:

  • Access Your Router Settings:
    • Open your web browser on a device connected to your network.
    • Type in the IP address of your router in the address bar. Common addresses include or If these don’t work, check the back of your router or your router’s manual for the correct address.
    • Enter your username and password. If you haven’t changed these from the default settings, the username and password should be listed on the back of your router or in the manual.
  • Locate Wi-Fi Settings:
    • Once logged in, look for a section labeled Wireless, Wireless Settings, Wireless Setup, or something similar.
    • Within this section, you should find a field labeled SSID, Network Name, or Wireless Network Name.
  • Change Your Wi-Fi Name:
    • Click on the field and delete the current name.
    • Enter your new Wi-Fi name. This is the name that will appear in the list of available networks on all your devices.
    • Avoid using personal information like your name, address, or other identifying information to maintain your privacy.
  • Save Your Settings:
    • Click Save, Apply, or whatever option your router provides to save your changes.
    • Some routers may require you to reboot for the changes to take effect.
  • Reconnect Your Devices:
    • After changing your Wi-Fi name, you will need to reconnect all your devices using the new name.
    • Select your new network name from the list of available networks on each device and enter your password to reconnect.
  • Check Your Connection:
    • Ensure that your devices reconnect properly and check the internet connection to confirm that everything is working as expected.

By following these steps, you will not only secure your network but also give it a personalized touch. A clever or funny name can serve as a conversation starter and bring a smile to those around you.

Best Practices for Naming Your Wi-Fi Network:

  • Avoid personal information such as your name, date of birth, or street address. While this data might help you and your family identify the right network, it could also provide valuable information to prying eyes.
  • Choose a name that doesn’t provide any clues to your password.
  • It’s advisable to keep your Wi-Fi name (SSID) respectful and inoffensive to maintain a good rapport with neighbors and others nearby who may see your network.
