EVANSTON, Ill., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- A Chicago area blogger has made it her mission to expose the unusual and humorous names people in the region give their WiFi networks.

Alexandra Janelli, the blogger behind WTFWiFi, said she began her quest when she lived in New York and found networks with names including "I eat babies for breakfast," "tequila rabbi" and "I've seen you naked," the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.

Janelli said she has since moved to Evanston, Ill., and discovered networks there and in Chicago with bizarre names including "Michael Jackson Day Care Service," "Andrews Don't Snitch," "Baby Loves Glue" and "Stop looking in my windows."

Janelli said she found some names are popular among wireless routers.

"Everywhere you find there are routers named 'Dumbledore' and 'Hogwarts' and after 'The Lord of the Rings,'" Janelli said.

Janelli said she was working as an environmental consultant in New York when she started blogging.

"I needed a hobby, and it was either going to be this or golf," she said.
