Well, Queenie is an 'old fashioned' name, nothing odd about it at all
I just did a search on births on the FreeBDM from 1900-1910 at West Ham
(where a lot of my family moved to from the East End) with first name
Queenie, and apart from finding my cousin Queenie Rebecca Leah Collison
b 1905, there were 234 other Queenies born in that 10 year period, just
in West Ham.
