It probably wouldn't be okay since often it your nickname your most known as most but the Varcoe family might not even practice this tradition. My family is catholic so indigenous spirituality is practiced very little in mine so this wouldn't matter.Maggie’s a nickname.
Shortened from her real name.
So should be ok.
If there are indigenous posters who can shed more light on these conventions, please contact the mods.
Her name has been used in articles on the AFL website etc. and I haven't heard any complaints from the Varcoe family so I can't really see them having a problem with her name being acknowledged on an internet thread full of condolences.
