#include "foo"
#include <foo>
#include "foo.png"
#include "/etc/passwd"

are all perfectly valid - the preprocessor just blindly includes the 
specified file. The only requirement for it is that it has to resolve 
<iostream> and co to the proper standard library headers.

I'd also advise for using some suffix for your own headers.
