Queenie is a name in itself and not short for anything. It was quite popular to name girls Queenie and if you look at the England and Wales birth index just for that first name you'll find hundreds.

Queenie can be a name in it's own right. As a nickname, it was used for all sorts of names - "little Queen"; bit like "little princess" or "duchess" for m-in-l!

Agree with above, but if fails try Victoria

I can see in the index lots of girls with Queenie as a middle name as well as first name so searching for the surname and year /place would maybe find the one being researched.

if you want any help let us have the details -- by PM if necessary.

My great grandmother Harriott Elizabeth was known in the family as Queenie, it was just a nickname.

I'm sorry Sunny but I deleted your PM to me with the details. Can you post them up here as the people concerned are most likely deceased by now with dob's of 1890 etc.
