Front [stuff] — Forward facing
“c.1290, from O.Fr. front “forehead, brow,” from L. frontem (nom. frons) “forehead,” perhaps lit. “that which projects,” from PIE *bhront-, from base *bhren- “to project, stand out.” Sense of “foremost part of anything” developed in L. The military sense of “foremost part of an army” (c.1350) led to the meaning “field of operations in contact with the enemy” (1665). Home front is from 1919. Sense of “public facade” is from 1891; that of “something serving as a cover for illegal activities” is from 1905. The verb is from 1523. Meteorological sense first recorded 1921. Frontal is 1656, of the forehead; 1971 with reference to the naked body. Front-runner is 1914, a metaphor from racing. Front yard first attested 1767.”http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/front
