Passwords and Dictionaries

I have just installed Redhat Linux 8.0 and created several users.
When I attempt to change or create passwords for these users
I have to end up with a password that is very hard to remember.

All normal passwords like my kids names or normal words are not
excepted because they are in a "dictionary".

Does anyone know where these dictionaries are?

Can they be changed?

Can they be ignored?

I understand the use of the feature and this is a standalone
machine for learning purposes only. I am familiar with AIX
and can have any password I wish.
