a palindrome is a word that is spelt the same way backwards, so you ´re examples are actually incorrect.
SEE:
bob - bob
 
nun - nun
 
mum - mum
 
Hannah - hannaH
 
just a few. :)

also, tenet - tenet
 
palindromes can also be phrases which can be adjusted to be read backwards, see these examples from wikipedia.
 
Four famous English palindromes are "Able was I ere I saw Elba"[3] (which is also palindromic with respect to spacing), "A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!”,[4] and “Madam, I ´m Adam” or "Madam, in Eden I ´m Adam"

Allegedly Eve ´s reply was, "Name no one man."

Please forgive me, since this is just for the Portuguese speakers, but I have just received an e-mail with these palindromes. I will share just a few...
 
Socorram-me, subi no onibus em Marrocos.
 
Anotaram a data da maratona.
 
A droga da gorda.
 
A torre da derrota.
 
And, my name,
Anna
