    My old neighbor called his AP "FBI Surveillance Van" which i thought was pretty funny. It showed up right after they moved in and i knew he was an IT guy. So I made mine broadcast the same SSID. He changed it two weeks later as it probably confused him for a while.

    My kids phone's hotspot was "FREE VIRUS!"

    One day at school, his phone was on, and the teacher told everyone to turn on their computers...."Turn them off! There's a virus!" [laugh]

    I'm slightly less original and fun... mine has been named "No" for a couple years now.

    When the internet was relatively new there were tons of student named wifi routers. When I was in the area I'd use my laptop to look at the names.

    One I remember was CrackWhore. But there were many others...

    My phone hotspot is currently FBI Surveillance Van. When I travel sometimes I’ll use Trump Is Your President.

    Why not. It's not like disabling the SSID broadcast actually adds to your security.

    I've been configuring the WiFi hotspots in rental vehicles with "FBI Surveillance Van" and a number. Spreading the love, one rental at a time. :D
