A word that spells the same, frontwards or backwards is a palindrome.

The word "swims" spells the same upside down and right side up.

Is there a word for that?

Entertain yourselves.

That's all you have to offer?

No though as to what word we might should start to use?

Someone, somewhere invented "palindrome".

Is that person better than us, or did he just have better PR?

How about a lexikat? From the Greek words for down (káto) and word (lexi)?
I feel like that was the title of a Disney movie. The Lexicats...

To steal a concept from some TV commercial, shouldn't palindrome be spelled the same way backwards?
