Just avoid it entirely and do it in Mata:

mata:mata clear
void function mm_svmat2(string scalar mat, string scalar vlist)
	m = st_matrix(mat)
	vv = tokens(vlist)
	st_view(X=., 1::rows(m), vv)
	X[. , .] = m

program drop _all
prog svmat2
syntax anything [,stub(string)]
local vn = cond("`stub'" == "", "var", "`stub'")
scalar nc = colsof(`anything')
forv i=1/`=nc' {
	local vname "`vn'`i'"
	qui gen double `vname' = .
	local vl "`vl' `vname'"
mata: mm_svmat2("`anything'","`vl'")

webuse auto, clear
qui corr price mpg headroom trunk weight length
mat corr=r(C)

svmat2 corr
svmat2 corr, stub(sergiy)
