I think Freddie just thought of it because he thought it sounded regal. A good, strong, powerful, name.

Freddie: "I thought up the name Queen...It's just a name, but it's very regal obviously, and it sounds splendid" p.72 Queen In Their Own Words (1992) Omnibus Press.

Exactly. It was short, sweet, and to the point. Plus, "old queen" seemed to be Freddie's nickname.. :P

Brian and Roger weren't keen on the name to start with, but Freddie managed to change their minds.

Nope, you're bang on. The other suggestion was 'The Rich Kids'. I think they made the right choice, don't you?
