One syllable is plenty

I haven’t been sharing DownEast.com’s trivia questions lately because the feature apparently went green and was recycling a bunch of questions I had already shared. It didn’t make sense to share them again.

But when I first read today’s question, I immediately thought: “Well, it’s the shortest name. … Oh, wait, there’s Texas and Idaho” and probably another that I can’t think of just yet.

Anyway, a Mainer might say that one syllable is all we need.

What is unique about the state’s name?

Answer

Maine is the only state with a single-syllable name.
