What's your internet connection called? It says a lot about you!


We're a little geeky around our house (my husband is in IT, so it's expected).  We like to have fun naming our portal to the internet (aka our WiFi). 

When we first moved in to our neighborhood, the cable guy didn't give us a choice in naming our connection and we always meant to change it but never got around to it.  Recently a new company with a fancy fiber connection moved in to the neighborhood and everyone on the street has been switching like crazy (including us!). 

We knew this was our time to seize the moment and come up with something unique, other than our last name as the name.  My husband chimed in of course and decided he wanted it called Oswald.  Yeah... he's a big Disney fan too.

My neighbor switched to the fancy new service too and asked me for ideas.  Immediately I decided Nemo would be a good name (they are a very tropical crew and even complete with a fish tattoo to match being Disney lovers).  How perfect I explained that they could ask their house guests "If they had found Nemo...".  They have that sense of humor.  And the fate of their WiFi connection name was set.

Come to find out the technician said that people come up with all sorts of crazy names for their connections, one of his favorites being Nacho Connection - this one is just so dang funny on so many levels, say it out loud if you aren't getting at least two reasons!  Another hilarious one was Child Pornography, well, because who would be stupid enough to break in to that and steal connection?

Another hilarious one I've seen floating around the internet is to name it FBI Surveillance Van.  It's enough to scare you're neighbors, right?

A fun one would be to name it Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, because seriously who would ever be able to spell it correctly enough?  (yes, I looked it up)

Go ahead, make my day Pedophile.  I'm watching youDark side.  All mention worthy in my book.

Now I asked a poll of my friends and sure enough most are pretty boring, naming them after pets, ahem - you know who you are.  Given a few minutes of creativity, what would you name your connection?  Because well, we can all use a good laugh when we can get it, right?

I wasn't going to name names, but ok. You outed yourself boring pet namers. I would have at least expected a Walt or something from you... ;)

Who would use their pet's name? Come on, let's be more creative!

I used our company name! And now I can't figure out how to change it. Lol.
