Ve­ci­no and Vicin­i­ty

The Span­ish for “neigh­bor”, ve­ci­no, comes from the Latin vici­nus for “neigh­bor­hood”. From that root, we al­so get the sim­i­lar… vicin­i­ty.

Af­ter all, what is your neigh­bor, if not some­one who is in the same vicin­i­ty as you!

This one is in the class of very ob­vi­ous ones (the v‑c-n root is clear in both) but you don’t re­al­ize it un­til some­one tells you.
