Do you use one of the above or similar?  Probably not a good idea you know!  Neither is using a combination of your name or children’s name.  Don’t use names of vegetables either!  In fact try not to use any word that can be found in a dictionary!
A SOLUTION:
Here’s a way you can come up with a memorable password.  Memorable to you that is!
Combine parts of two or more words or names and then chuck in a number or two to replace letters.  Here’s an example:
EXAMPLE:
Let’s pretend I used to have a pet called Rover.  Let’s also say I used to live in a house that had the name Primrose Cottage.  Remembering that I could use numbers to replace some letters, I could come up with a password like this:
r0vpr1mcott
EXPLANATION:
That’s a lower case ‘R’ followed by a zero ‘0’ and also a number ‘1’ to replace the ‘i’ of prim.
Ok this might be a little complicated but I think you get the idea?
