A wheelie suitcase that you put your swimsuits and pants into when going on vacation is an example of your luggage.
Origin of luggage
- Probably lug (bag)gage
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- 1590s, lug (“drag") +"Ž -age (“(noun)") - literally “that which is lugged, dragged around". Duplicate -g- is to clarify pronunciation of the vowel "˜u' (which is pronounced unchanged from lug). Compare baggage.
