This is a list of places and things named after Anne, Queen of Great Britain, who reigned from 1702 to 1714.

Not all things with "Queen Anne" in their name refer to Queen Anne (1665–1714). Anne's great grandmother Anne of Denmark, the queen consort of King James I of England, lent her name to the theatrical company Queen Anne's Men, and Cape Ann, Massachusetts. Both queens are credited with lending their name to the plant Queen Anne's lace.[1][2]
