What are these called?

I've seen words that written so they are read the same upside down as they are normally. I think it begins with an a, but I can't remember what they're called.

Thanks in advance.

Update:

No, this is literally upside down. It doesn't matter what the word is, it's just the way it's written.

    do you mean upside down or backwards, when they are the same regular as they are backwards is a palindrome. Those are words like, mom, dad, madam and such. Hope thats what you mean

    I think you're talking about palindromes... you do mean backwards, rather than upside-down, right?
