Origin of concatenation 
Late Latin
1595-1605 
Concatenation comes straight from the Late Latin noun concatēnātiō (stem concatēnātiōn-) “connection, sequence” (literally “chaining together”), a derivation
of catēna “chain.” The Italian and Spanish words for “chain” ( catena and cadena, respectively) far more closely resemble the Latin original than does
the modern French chaîne (the English source for “chain”), which passed through the stages chaeine (Old French), from caeine (Old North French), from Latin
catēna. Concatenation entered English in the early 17th century.
