Are these strange queries on our webstore legitimate?

I work at an internet store. When I look at the search terms used within our site's internal search engine there are a number of items and brands that are searched for, but with the words in reverse order. For example there are hundreds more searches for "Kanteen Klean" than there is for "Klean Kanteen". Likewise, there are many more searches for "curtain shower" and "case pencil" than there are for "shower curtain" or "pencil case". What is going on?

Do people actually search this way? Is there some kind of bot that would be searching our site? And if so, why? I want to know if these are searches by people actually interested in these products.
