Just forget the term "Friesian Islands"
It's rather difficult to do that (it's Frisian [sic] in English: just ignore anything I spelled incorrectly), since Frisian Islands is how they're named in English. The whole archipelego is called 'Frisian', and comprises the West Frisian Islands, the East Frisian Islands, and the North Frisian Islands. The islands once formed Frisia; I don't know how much Frisian is spoken today, but it's still spoken in on the North Frisian Islands (according to a wireless program once introduced by the late Lala Anderson—of 'Lili Marlene' fame—, who came from Sylt).

my "North Eastern" North American accent
You just said 'north-eastern', without specifying where; you might have meant Northumberland, for example, . . . or Groningen.
