I don't think the Borg Queen would have a designation, any more than your neocortex has a name.
Only if you're being deliberately obtuse about the definition of a "name."

It has a "name" insofar as it is a distinct region of the brain and a term has been developed to refer to it exclusively. It does not have a "name" in the sense of a personal name, a middle name, and a family name; it does not have a unique identity separate from the person to whom it belongs.
Do "7 of 9" or "4 of 12" sound like personal names to you? Did you specify name, or personal name? You tell me I'm wrong, and then proceed to explain why I'm exactly right.
As the brilliant philosopher once said... Everybody, have fun tonight. Everybody, Wang Chung tonight.
