Expecting a new baby (or babies!) is exciting, to be sure, but it can also be overwhelming. This is especially true when it comes to picking out a moniker for your soon-to-be newborn. Whether you’re interested in a more typical baby name, or you want every one of your child’s teachers to comment on how unique his or her name is, the possibilities are endless... and staggering. But if you’re the kind of person who craves symmetry in every part of your life, including baby names, your pool of options just got much smaller and less intense. Palindrome baby names are spelled the same backwards and forwards, so all your symmetrical dreams can (and will) come true.

Names.org recently released a list of the top 25 most popular palindrome names, based on an analysis of the Social Security Administration's name database since 1890. The following list is compiled of a wonderful mix of unique and slightly more common names you, and your baby, is sure to love:
