Yes, except that some persons called Indigenous names, common throughout the Americas though often bastardised, "foreign". Ottawa/Outaouais (the river). Actual pronunciation by the Indigenous people more similar to Odaweh. One among hundreds if not thousands of examples throughout the Americas/America (the continent). Détroit is French, but I'd be surprised if the Indigenous people didn't call it something similar as the short river between two Great Lakes with little Lac-St-Claire is such a distinctive geographical feature. Hope Fumobici comes along (tomorrow) with names from Pacific Northwest peoples.

I should have included Y in its vowel persona, in case Mick wants to confab about coriander and cilantro with his friends Cyrus and Cyril. And I appreciate the information that the rule holds true in other Romance languages.
