Yes. The init var and method must have different internal names,

Generally, replace a single name with `(internal-name external-name)'
to make the internal and external names different.

 (class object%
    (init ((local-foo foo) 17))
            ; ^        ^    ^--- default value
            ; |         `---- external name
            ;  internal name
