The Argon wordlist is a good source of common passwords:

As for generating combinations, I think that THC Hydra allows creation of
passwords of a certain length.

Subject: Fwd: password list generation

Hi list,

I am pentesting the backbone of an ISP. There are several ssh and
telnet ports open, and I would like to launch a brute force password
attack. However, i want to lower the number of possibilities to try to
those common combinations we all use in our company (ACME2007,
AcmE2OO7, AcMe123, etc.).
is anybody aware of a tool that can generate a list of passwords from
a root word, the company name for example, or is there any source that
lists all the trivial combination of words commonly used as passwords.

Thanks guys.
