you have a variaty of possibilities. for example, just incrementing a number will give a unique number and the limit is pretty high (for an long it 2^64-1)
for a name, you can also use the ID and maybe something like "Queue" + ID;
or if you want something unique accross machines, you can use GUID's

you have at least 2 options, but none of it is ... perfect.
1) extend the Queue class and add the necessary fields.
2) use a hashtable or something like that in which you add either the ID or an object with the necessary fields

examples:
1)
class MyQueue : Queue{
  public int ID;
}
MyQueue q = new MyQueue();
q.ID = ID;
2) HashTable t;
t.Add(myQueue,ID);
