What Is the Shortest Place Name in The World?

The name of a village in France has the least number of letters of any place name on earth, just one! This village is called simply “Y”, a word that means “there” in French.

There are villages called A in Denmark and Norway, and a cape in the Caroline Islands is called U. While these names are as short as the name of Y, it’s certain that no place on earth will ever have a shorter name!
