Yeah, a four syllable word when almost every word I’ve done here has been one. Do you know how hard it is to find a word beginning with U that isn’t an un- word?
Ubiquitous, which basically means something that’s everywhere, showed up fairly recently, in the early nineteenth century (in etymological terms, that’s like last week). The reason it’s so recent is because another word, ubiquity, was used then (and I just found out that ubiquity is a real word! Wow!). Ubiquity showed up in the late sixteenth century, coming from the Middle French ubiquité and the classical Latin ubique. In Latin, ubi means where, and que…well, it has tons of meanings, including giving “universal meaning” when used as a suffix. So it’s like saying “all across the universe”, but in three letters and in suffix form.
I don’t pretend to understand Latin. Or any languages for that matter. They’re weird.
