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.
