An easy way to memorize the bones in skull is to remember: 

Occasionally Frantic PETS

  • Occipital - Occasionally 
  • Frontal - Frantic 
  • Parietal - P
  • Ethmoid - E
  • Temporal - T
  • Sphenoid - S

Extra Tip:

If you notice the ending of each bone, you can notice that it has a common pattern:

3 bones end with 'tal'
2 bones end with 'oid'
1 bone ends with 'ral'

Keep this pattern in mind to verify your list is correct and complete.
