Yes, of course, that is what I actually meant, a file per language, but
wrote clumsy in speed country. If you check ls output from folder with
generated languages or pasted code, these are language files, not
country files: for example names-ar.el is for arabic language, names-sv
is for swedish etc.

There are entire iso standards to deal with locales, their names etc and
I don't think that calendar.el needs to implement entire ICU. I just
wish to automate parts that can be easily automated.

@Stefan, those files could be distributed as an Elpa package, they don't
need to be shipped with Emacs itself.
