the measure of a straight-line distance between two points is called length.

The maximum straight-line distance between two points on the circumference of a circle.

Without wishing to overcomplicate matters, one could simply define a straight line as: "the shortest distance between two given points".

If you only have two points, they are necessarily collinear, because a straight line can be drawn between any two points.

A tangent line is a line that is parallel to and intersecting a point on a curve, where the limit of the distance between two points on that curve (one of them being the point in question) and those two points also being on that line approaches zero. Since a straight line has only one slope, at all points on the line, then there can only be one tangent line to a straight line, and the tangent line is the same line as the straight line.

The shortest distance between four points is a straight line to and from each individual point. If all four points are aligned, the result will be a single straight line through all four points.

That's called the "distance" between the points.
