I am a palindrome and so is my friend Bob. You can spell my and his names backwards and they're still the same. Other types of palindromes include words like "desserts" that, when put backwards spells "stressed."
Apparently, I should have considered this phenomenon when picking a name for my child. Elliot likely won't be so happy when he's old enough to know that his name spells toille backwards. It is a lovely fabric, yes, but kind of girly for a brute man-child. Sorry pal.
