Methuselah = Methusalam ?

Really dislike the way names in the Bible or the names of kings are changed according to each language so that they are easier to pronounce in whatever language it is about. Makes it harder to know what/who you are talking about in an international setting.

Those three words are indeed palindromes (which I figured out), but they are also nouns. If you want palindrome to be the only acceptable answer, then you should re-word the question as noun is an acceptable for the way it's currently written.
