Is there a way to import into the new language the note names from an
existing language?
All the note name definitions are contained in the associated list
When applying (assoc-get 'english language-pitch-names) you'll get a list of
all the English note definitions.

That way, you can append several lists, e.g. using Harm's do-re-mi example:

myNames = #(append (assoc-get 'english language-pitch-names)
     (do . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 NATURAL))
     (re . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 1 NATURAL))
     (mi . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 2 NATURAL))

That works beautifully.  Thanks.
