Non-English-sounding words. I haven't looked up origins of any of these, so they may actually have come from other languages (which word isn't?), but are well-established in English to be considered native.

spatula - a Swedish girl and her sister uvula
jigger - a famous Irish dance
nadir - the Prince of Saudi Arabia
musket - a tougher bread than baguette
billowy - French girl saying yes to Bill
aft - German exclamation

I could go on.
