Treble Clef vs Alto Clef

I have this strange way of reading music.
My first instrument was violin, meaning I first leaned how to play in C treble clef. I learned how to read bass clef for piano, then Bb treble clef when I started writing music, as well as Eb treble clef, then finally alto clef when I started playing viola last year.
BUT instead of reading the note on the alto clef music (for an example) as an F, in my head I immediately call it a G, relating it to C treble clef music; I also do that with Bb tc and Eb tc. Does anyone else do the same?
In a way, it's a good thing because I can easily relate to the basic C tc, but if someone asks me to play a certain note (viola-wise, for an example) I'll play the note they said as in C tc, if that makes any sense ;)

interested in new soundfonts and soundeffects in your music ?
