Sorry, got chopped.  Repeat:
From the Oxford English Dictionary:

COL (=together) + LINEAR (from the Latin linea=line)

Dear Statalisters,

Some you you may find this inapropriate on statalist, but I will risk
getting shot down here since I have thought about this for a while:

Why are there two L's in collinear? One makes more sense to me. Co (together; joint; jointly; mutually) + linear (or resembling a line / straight)
=colinearity
