Meaning & History

From the Roman cognomen Fronto, which was derived from Latin fronto meaning "one with a large forehead". The latter is ultimately derived from the Latin noun frons meaning "forehead, brow" as well as "front".

Known bearers of this name include the Roman grammarian and rhetorician Marcus Cornelius Fronto (2nd century AD) and saint Fronto of Périgueux (1st century AD or 3rd century AD - the sources conflict on this).
