If you use the form Yr Amwythig, is it "Dw i'n hoffi Yr Amwythig" or "Dw i'n hoffi'r Amwythig"? Or are either used?

Or in other words, if a placename or other proper noun includes the definite article, does it still turn into 'r after a vowel?

What about places such as "Dw i'n hoffi'r Falli" / "Dach chi'n hoffi'r Fenni?" for "Y Falli" (Valley) and "Y Fenni" (Abergavenny)? Are those "...hoffi y Falli / hoffi y Fenni" instead? Or either?
