How about something like "NBI Cybersecurity" ?? That way if someone was able to sniff out your network, it might deter them from going any further
Wish I'd thought of that name, well I think, actually I was able to accomplish this last task, dang.... it took a while, nothing on the web even comes close on how to change my unit's SSID, so I went with another old faithful media spot a female Internet and computer specialist I used to listen to on the AM radio called Kim Komando and actually her advice is basic and to the point and gets me to where I need to be.

My SSID number or name is unchangeable there's no option like some of the YouTube video's to change PLDTHOMEDSL, the older units had an option but the new one, no way it's not even an option they have an add on blank to the right of that area where you add to the name, so that's what I did and as soon as I hit the save button my son was kicked off the internet. All I had to do was input the same code that came with the WiFi unit and he was logged in again.

Hope that sounds right? I had to log in again to my wife's cell phone also.

On a lighter note the in-law is down on the corner trying to hack neighbors PLDT WiFi, my son seen him lurching down there next to their house.... Did I mention my in-laws are relentless or unrelenting, nothing phases them they move on and get what they want, going to help my neighbor on the corner update his WiFi unit....LOL, next area with a WiFi is the pig and duck farm, smells to high heaven, it's so bad sometimes I choke walking by, I'll let him grab his dose of WiFi in that area. Nothing's to good for the in-laws.
