Queen's move can also be read as 'any number of steps in any straight direction'. In 3d it's orthogonal, diagonal and triagonal. If there are no any compounds of only 2 straight directions in 2d game, better name for compound of all 3 is queen. However, if game have both orthogonal+diagonal and orthogonal+diagonal+triagonal, better name for first is queen, and empress for second. Buy the way, which name may be used for 4d queen (i mean, compound rook+bishop+unicorn+4d mover)?
