POPANASIS (Posted on 2017-03-23) Difficulty: 2 of 5
<this proper name> consists (like the title) of three consecutive palindromic triads.

It might depict a person, a place, a title or an event.
Find it and comment about it.

so, first I found a website that did a crawl of the entire Wikipedia website and collected data on all available terms/concepts.  There were 2,971,068 terms.  I then narrowed this down to those with 9 characters in them.  This brought the list down to 104,764.  I then looked at the first, middle, and last 3 characters and filtered down to those where each of the 3 sets are palindromes.  This brought me down to the following list of 11 terms:

1811-1868
1811-1898
1911-1919
1911-1929
1911-1939
1911-1949
1911-1999
1912-2000
adam mojo
agamemnon
analalava

As you can see, most of these are year ranges, so we are left with 3 proper names

Adam Mojo
Agamemnon
Analalava

Now you may wish to exclude Adam Mojo as it uses the space to form the middle palindrome "m M".

Adam Mojo is the name of a graphic designer who worked on various Star Trek projects

Agamemnon is a character from Greek mythology

Analalava is a coastal town in Madagascar
