Whenever I open Safari or check e-mail on my iPhone the connection settings will open and show me a list of available wi-fi networks. Depending on my location the list can actually be quite long and sometimes reading what people have decided to call their networks can be pretty funny. Last year Mashable did a story on funny wi-fi names with ‘Police Surveillance Van 2‘ at the top of their list. My favorite was ‘Use This One Mom‘ because you just know what the story behind it is.

I got in the habit for some reason of capturing network names if they looked interesting. Usually they were boring default modem names like these:

My all time favorite network was in Ireland for obvious reasons:

This morning I found a link on Twitter for WTF WiFi. They have a growing list of submitted wi-fi names as well as a blog for posting the story behind the names.

Have a favorite name? Feel free to share it in the comments. Have a great day!
