Hello @Emma.S 

SSID is short for Service Set Identifier. All Wireless/WiFi networks have one. This is the name of your home network. 

The network name is what you chose when selecting which WiFi to join. You’ll usually get a card from your broadband/WiFi provider with the SSID name and a password. 

If you want to know more, maybe try searching online :)
