You have 2 eyes (optic)
3,4,6 makes your eyes do tricks (ocular motor, trochlear, abducens)
5 rhymes with tri (trigemenal)
the #7 can be drawn on your face (facial)
you can make an eight in your ear (acoustic)
9 and 10 both have a "g" (glossopharengeal, vagus)
11 makes your shoulders go to heaven (spinal accessory)
This helps me. I actually can not remember all of them but I remember the majority and that helps me eliminate the ones that are not correct.
Hope this helps!!

For the cranial nerves, it gives:
Oh - Optic
Oh - Oculomotor
To - Trochlear
And - Abducens
Feel - Facial
Very - Vestibulocochlear
Vegetables - Vagus
AH! - Accessory and Hypoglossal

And for motor, sensory or both:
Many say marry money, but my brother says big boobs mean more.
