I don't know the answer.
I did not think that there were any rules for place names.
Is anyone discussing place names yet?

By the way, the original MAGA text used straight quotes so the leading apostrophes of the Late Cornish variants looked OK.
If you are typing Late Cornish variant SWF, it's better to turn off smart quotes.

The latest newsletter begins in the Late Cornish variant of the SWF. 
Inter alia it says:

Les hwei a dheu dhe guntelles MAGA,
ha na rugo’ hwei gorra ‘gas hanow
hwath, me ‘venja drei hedna dhe ‘gas
kov eneth arta, leverel dhew’ fatel
vedh synjys yn mis Jenver, an 31vas
jorna, yn Lostwydhiel.

How are we to know that Lostwydhiel is not stressed Lostwy'dhiel?
What are the rules?
