1. Smartacus

“Smartacus” is a spin on Spartacus, the Thracian gladiator who led the third and biggest revolt of the enslaved people against Rome.50 Funny Names for Smart TVs

The logic behind some people naming their HDTVs “Smartacus” could be how the device meets the needs of different people in the house and still wages on without breaking a sweat.

For Spartacus fans, their TV could be their Spartacus or “Smartacus.”

2. Samson

Samsung is arguably one of the biggest TV manufacturers in the world. Many people swear by Samsung products, particularly their TVs.

They will even buy a Samsung TV even if there are cheaper alternatives from other brands. Samsung’s loyal customer base is not very far off from Apple’s fanbase.

But some people take that devotion to another level and create an emotional bond with their Samsung products. For instance, people calling their Samsung TVs “Samson” is not unheard of, ignoring the fact that there’s an actual company named “Samson.”

By the way, you may replace the “-son” with “-daughter,” referring to the TV as “Samdaughter.” Yeah, it’s weirdly funny.

3. Living TV

A smart TV is an inanimate, non-living object. But because the TV is usually set up in the living room, you could call it the “living TV,” rather than the “living room TV.”

If the TV is in the bedroom, the name could be “bedroom TV.” But it doesn’t have the same ring.

There’s something about the name “Living TV” that makes sense but is also ironic. After all, a TV is not “alive.”

4. Michael

Using proper human names to refer to a TV is uncommon and funny. Let’s graduate from referring to our pets with proper names to naming our appliances and devices with those names too.
If the name does not sound funny in isolation, it certainly makes for a funny phrase when it says “Send to Michael” on your smartphone.

People could use other names instead of Michael, which won’t be any less funny in the above context.

5. Tamed Bull

The average smart TV is much more capable than the TVs of yore. But the TV doesn’t have a mind of its own and awaits instructions to unfold itself.

Because the user controls the device completely, name your TV the “Tamed Bull” it is. It sounds funny and is also logical.

6. Is It TV?

If you’ve seen the reality game show Is It Cake on Netflix, you’ll know where the inspiration for this name comes from.

For the unfamiliar, Is It Cake is a baking-based, fun game show where participants prepare cakes based on real-world objects, making them look incredibly realistic.

A panel of judges is later invited to detect the cake from the objects the cake is modeled after. Naming your TV “Is It TV?” will surely bring a smile to those who’ve watched the show and are reminded of it.

7. Born in 1938

Samsung building

The year 1938 is when Samsung was founded. If you are obsessed with Samsung, use the name “Born in 1938” as your TV name.

It’s a mysterious and funny name for a TV and can be quite a conversation starter.

Some, however, could name their TV after their year of birth to create that virtual bond with their TV.

8. Couch Companion

If you watch your TV alone, the name “Couch Companion” is quite fitting.

If you watch TV in the bedroom, name it “Bed Companion.” However, the name may sound desperate and border “object sexuality.”

9. Dopamine Box

Before Instagram and TikTok gained notoriety for their instant dopamine-dishing nature, TV was the only purveyor of this neurotransmitter.

When you watch a movie or TV show that you like, your brain makes dopamine. The TV is, therefore, the OG dopamine tool, meaning the name “Dopamine Box” suits it quite well.

The name sounds both funny and learned.

10. Samsung Window

The TV is your window to the world.

Even though it’s limited in scope compared to a laptop with an internet connection, it’s nevertheless a gateway to what’s happening worldwide.

And if it’s a Samsung TV, why not call it a “Samsung Window?” The name is inventive and fun at the same time.

If your TV is an LG, Sony, or some other brand, substitute “Samsung” with your TV’s brand name.

11. Made in America

American Flag

China is the manufacturing hub of the world. The country usually exports fully made products or sends parts. iPhone, for instance, is made in China, albeit designed by Apple USA.

But some devices could be sourced in parts and assembled in the USA or outside of China.

However, no television is made in America. The “Made in America” name can be a satirical reminder of how no TV is made in the U.S.

12. Jarvis

Jarvis is a good name for your TV if you’re a Tony Stark fan.

In the Iron Man comic book, Jarvis is human and a close friend to Tony Stark. In the movie, however, Jarvis, or “J.A.R.V.I.S.,” is advanced AI.

Let the “Jarvis” in your home be your television.

13. Wifey

“Wifey” is a pun on both “wife” and “Wi-Fi” since smart TVs are insipid without a connection to the internet.

Some may name their TV “Wifey” because they probably spend more time with their TV than their better half.

If that’s you, be ready for a confrontation with your spouse.

14. Joey

If you are a fan of the sitcom Friends, you will get where the name comes from.

People who name their television Joey or Chandler are likely to have seen all episodes of Friends and possibly done multiple reruns.

Those unfamiliar with the popular sitcom could misconstrue the name for an ex-husband or ex-boyfriend, which may lead to funny and, at times, not-so-funny situations.

Feel free to replace “Joey” with the name of a character from your favorite show or movie.

15. Guilty Pleasure

Watching TV is an activity that most people look down upon since it doesn’t lend to productivity and is perceived as a waste of time.

Most avid TV users realize the same but cannot hold themselves back from staying glued to their flat-screen entertainment devices.

Naming a TV “Guilty Pleasure” is a fun way to remind one that they aren’t deriving anything of value from the activity.

16. Entertainment Valley

The TV is the ultimate source of entertainment.

Although the internet and streaming services have superseded the good old TV, the TV is still an excellent option for those who don’t want to squander time choosing which show or movie to watch.

There’s no “paradox of choice” with a TV since the device bowls out entertaining content as soon as you turn it on. It’s, therefore, not incorrect to give it the “Entertainment Valley” name.

17. Cast Away

No, this has nothing to do with the movie, or perhaps there’s a connection.

If you’ve watched the movie “Cast Away,” you’d know the protagonist gets stuck alone on a deserted island.

Name your TV “Cast Away” if Cast Away is your favorite movie or you spend most of your time watching TV or “Chromecast-ing.”

18. 404 Error

Some people may want to deter others from connecting or sending stuff to their TV.

Naming their TV “404 Error” is a funny way to scare the not-very-tech-savvy people away who could misinterpret the name as some mysterious code or a technical glitch.

19. The Other Potato

If the one (you) sitting on the sofa and watching TV is the couch potato, the TV has to be the other potato since it’s also lazing away seated on its stand.

At least, that is the logic you can present to people intrigued by the name. Whether it’s funny could be questionable, but the fact that it’s weirdly true is a spark of ingenuity.

20. It’s My TV

Naming the TV “It’s My TV” again is an effort to categorically state that the TV is yours, and one must seek your permission before connecting to the device.

Needless to say, “It’s My TV” sounds different and amusing. It shall undoubtedly crack up those who come across the name for the first time.

21. Big Bertha

It’s perfect for those who believe size does matter when it comes to binge-watching.
