Andrew,

Engine two (at least on a twin) is on the starboard side of the aircraft,
away from the pax entry door(s).

Starting #2 first allows last minute access to and from the aircraft by
ground crew without risking engine ingestion.

Historic, you bet. The danger was even greater in the propr era.
