Really? On Canadian side of the border we call it Ni-AG-ara.
Apparently it's a Mohawk word meaning "the neck".

Sault Ste. Marie
(northern Ontario) commonly called "The Soo"

NI-AG-ra here, too, in the states, but someone said the proper native translation is Nia-GA-ra.. I'll have to look it up on Wi-ki-pe-DIA. :)

Ottawa, Ontario

Canada's capital city stands on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of southern Ontario. Ottawa borders Gatineau, Quebec. Founded in 1826 as Bytown, and incorporated as "Ottawa" in 1855, the city has evolved into a political and technological center of Canada. The city name "Ottawa" was chosen in reference to the Ottawa River nearby, the name of which is derived from the Algonquin Odawa, meaning "to trade".

Oswestry England but close to the border - had to go there once to have my petrol drained! At one point - hundreds of years ago, used to flit across the border!
