Ever heard of the first name Queen? My GGGgrandmother first name was Queen, although I cannot find any document that proves this, other than a census that shows it. What's odd is the census before the one with "queen" says Sara R.

It used to be not that uncommon a first name. In the 1880 census (as documented by Heritage Quest) there were over 3000 people with that first name.

"Queenester" or Queen Ester was not uncommon in the South in the 1940's and earlier. My father would speak of one of the cooks in college, Queenie, who would be arrested in Tuscaloosa, AL, for "dancing on Sundays." The clubs were supposed to shut down on Saturday nights at midnight and dancing on Sunday was forbidden by law. Since he was the treasurer of the fraternity, he would have to get up Sunday mornings and bail Queenie out so she could come cook breakfast!
