When you get a new wireless router, you have the opportunity to give it a name, which you'll use to identify it in the list of nearby signals. You could go the boring route and give the network a standard name, or you could entertain your neighbors by coming up with a funny WiFi name. 

Need some suggestions for names that will amuse (or confuse) the neighbors? Check out 19 of the funniest WiFi names ever created.

Normally we'd tell you to go see a doctor for something like this, but we'll go ahead and assume you're joking. We hope.

Bill Wi the Science Fi

Via

Everybody loves Bill Nye the Science Guy!

This network name is even better since the person who found it said they were at the mall when they discovered it. It's always fun to find funny WiFi names like this "in the wild."

My Own Damn Internet

Via

Somebody did as they were told, so that's good. It probably took months of internet mooching before they made this big step, but all's well that ends well!

FBI Surveillance Van

Via

Something tells us that the Federal Bureau of Investigation might be a little more careful than this network name would imply. Then again, they are a government agency, so maybe not.

Pretty Fly for a WiFi

Via

Speaking of oldies but goodies, this one's a throwback to the 1998 Offspring song "Pretty Fly For A White Guy." Plus 1 for being totally retro!

Look at all of those funny names! This has to be the best apartment building to live in, except for the guy who refuses to pick up his dog poop. We hate that guy!

Drop it Like it's Hotspot

There's another Bill Nye fan in this neighborhood, but we're more interested in that spot-on Snoop Dogg reference.

Wam Bam Thank You Lan

Via

Speaking of old school music references, this one goes way back to the David Bowie's "Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am," which was released in 1972. It's an oldie but a goody.

Poop Emoji

Via Reddit

"So apparently you can name WiFi networks with Emoji," said the Redditor who shared this screenshot. That was definitely news to us, and it opens a whole new world of possibilities.

But are we just going to ignore the neighbor who named their network, "Abraham LinkSys?"

LAN Down Under

On the living room, you can sit in your living room while exploring the entire world. Including Australia, as this WiFi name reminds us.

This LAN is Your LAN

They say that, but the WiFi network is locked, so I'm not sure how generous they really are.

Gotta love a neighbor who channels Seinfeld: "No soup for you!"
