Yes, you can name your wireless network anything you want. And some people have a good sense of humor.
 
When you're out of ideas on what to name your router's SSID :)

Thought I should share my registry file and batch file to stop GWX from running. The best option to prevent Windows 10 from installing automatically is to disable recommended updates and run both of these which gets rid of the GWX application.
**StopW10.reg*
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Gwx]
"DisableGwx"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\OSUpgrade]
"AllowOSUpgrade"=dword:00000000
**StopW10.reg*
**win-7-GWX-Uninstall.bat**
@echo off
