I was listening to "Blackbird" by the Beatles recently, and was struck by the line:
"You were only waiting for this moment to arise."
I was intrigued by the way the phrase "to arise" has sort of an ambiguous function here. [more inside]

I am looking for the name of the girl in the song Rocky Raccoon by the Beatles (the one that called herself Lil and that everyone knew as Nancy). Lyric sites vary between Magil, Magill, and McGill, but I do not want to rely on the number of search results as the answer. Is there a definitive source for her real name?
