Since I moved to working remotely full-time, I have been making some investments to help me comfortably work from my “home office”. One of my recent purchases was installing a mesh system to help push our WiFi to all areas of our house. Since I’m competing with my son who has a gaming PC, I need as much bandwidth as I can get for Zoom meetings.
Setting up the mesh system was easy but when it came to naming the WiFi network for our house, I paused. This is a chance to name my WiFi network something clever, funny or meaningful. Several years ago, I named my WiFi network after my church because I thought it would be a passive way of marketing my church to the 3-4 neighbors who were within range (as opposed to actually having a conversation with them about their faith beliefs).
Earlier in the year, I had to set-up a WiFi network for my in-laws, who moved temporarily into an apartment complex. I went with the classic “Jesus Loves You”, which my mother-in-law fully endorsed.
Conducting a quick search for “Funny Christian WiFi Names” I stumbled onto a goldmine of ideas. Here are a few that I thought were pretty funny and creative.
- The Promised LAN
- Routing Thomas
- Called to Server
- You Shalt Not Covet Your Neighbors WiFi
- LAN does not live on bread alone
- Phishers of Men
Then I started thinking of my own ideas…
- Modem and Gomorrah (You got to admit this one is pretty awesome)
- LAN of Sorrows
- Enter through the narrow gateway
- Cain and Cable
- Psalm 802.11
- LTE of the World
- LANmentations (Contribution by my friend Trevor)
So what Christian WiFi network name did I choose? None of the above. I just settled on “Lighten Up Gear” for the WiFi name. Don’t ask me for the password.
