Take this broken grammar and learn to fly

What is the name of the girl in the song Rocky Raccoon?

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?
