According to Wiki How, there are some things you should avoid. Your kids. No, that came out wrong. Don't use their birthday, their hockey team name, their school, anything about them because it's too easy to guess. Anything family, for that matter, is too easy for someone to guess and can hack into any of your accounts.

One thing people are using a whole lot more is area landmarks or things around the city. If a person were to research Duluth or Superior, they could come up with some easy landmarks and make a guess. Don't use Enger Tower, Aerial Lift Bridge, Iron Ore, Bong Bridge, Shipping, or Lake Superior to name a few.
