Could a Bosnian Muslim have the surname Novakovic?

Thanks to all. The back story of Ms Novakovic (from what I saw in the paper today), in case people were interested:

  • Serbian (“Greek Orthodox”) father died.
  • Indonesian mother; but outside of Aceh, most Indonesians are not strict Muslims
  • However, her maternal uncle encouraged her to embrace Islam as a teenager
  • She changed her name from Nancy to Aisha
  • She started wearing niqab—which her mother objected to
  • She was radicalised and used to have a poster of Osama in her bedroom
  • She has turned against radicalism since
