My vote currently is for

                display:flexbox
                display:inline-flexbox
                flexbox-align
                flexbox-direction
                flexbox-flex
                etc.

yes, 'flexbox-flex' looks odd but the whole naming system is very clear.

I also prefer 'orientation' to 'orient'.

(1) I don't think "flex" by itself is a good term for display-inside.  I also agree that "box" is arguably too generic.  You might consider just combining the words flex and box together.

display: flex-box
display: inline-flex-box

The same would apply to other properties, e.g., flexbox-begin not flex-begin.

The original version of Tab's spec used "flexbox". What's you're issue with just "flex"? flexbox seems redundant to me.
