I confess, I am a Wi-Fi moocher, albeit of the polite and pay-you-back variety. Yes, I appropriate my neighbors network, but I have their permission and their password…as long as I chip in a few bucks every month towards their bill.
So far, their Wi-Fi network name is just, well, their last name. A simple, run-of-the-mill name — certainly not one to turn any heads. However, as the BBC, (compliments of Reddit) pointed out, more people are putting their creativity to use and coming up with broadband names that are sure to make their neighbors do a few double takes, if not spit takes.

Here's a few examples:
Anti-Theft: "Go Away Don't Steal My Broadband ," "Stop Mooching Our Internet," "Covet not thy neighbor's wi-fi," "Thou shall not steal!"
Not-so-polite suggestions: "StopHavingSoMuchSex," "Stop slamming the door!!!," "Stop wearing heals!," "Stop running," "Your Music in annoying!," "Shut The Barking Dog Up No 7"
Friendly Neighbors: "Free Wifi For Neighbors," "Hola Neighborinos," "I like my neighbors"
