Post Your Funny WiFi Router Names

I have come upon some funny router names when searching for a WiFi signal on my iPhone and decided to screenshot a few. Post up if you have any!
LOL the first guy "don't even" had no security on his WiFi network for some reason so I hopped on it a few times and after a week or so later he changes it to
"DON'T EVEN!!!1" and finally added network security. I would like to say that I actually helped the guy get some security

Changing the name of my router

I need to work out how to change mine. At the moment I think it's just the default 'TalkTalkac564'. Does this give anything away security-wise? We have the default password as well but it's different for every router and it's not just something like 'TalkTalk123'. Can anyone help? Thanks.

My router is just an ordinary Belkin... but my wi-fi network name (SSID) is Sexual Bliss.

All three are networks in my home.
The top on is my own personal network, middle one is for the rest of my family, and the bottom one is my mobile MiFi for when I'm out and about.
Would like to see if anyone knows the references

When I was in college I had "Go Fu*k Yourself," then later switched to "Nopornherebye." I actually had a neighbor on a lower level than me question me if it was mine while I was out walking my dog. I guess I gave off a leave me alone vibe? Now, I'm keeping it much more simple with the name of my dog.
