From Latin sollus (whole), ultimately from the Indo-European root sol- (whole), which brought us solid, salute, save, salvo, soldier, catholicity, salutary, and salubrious + citus, past participle of ciere (to arouse), ultimately from the Indo-European root kei- (to set in motion), which also gave us cinema, kinetic, excite, and resuscitate. Earliest documented use: 1563.
