Queen Family History
Queen Name Meaning
Scottish: shortened form of McQueen . English: from the Middle English female personal name Quene sometimes a pet form of Quenill (Old English Cwēnhild from cwēn ‘queen’ + hild ‘battle’). Early examples of the name are mainly from southern England especially Sussex but its currency in late medieval northern England has also been suggested by records from Yorkshire. English: possibly a nickname from Middle English quene ‘woman; harlot; crone’ (Old English cwēn) but this is less likely than 2 to have given rise to a hereditary surname.
