pwgen or one of the other password generation tools with the right
options. :)

apt-cache show pwgen

Description: Automatic Password generation
 pwgen generates random, meaningless but pronounceable passwords.
 on how the program was installed, these words contain either only
 lowercase letters, or upper and lower case mixed, or digits thrown

 remembering their position when memorizing only the word.
