The simplest solution would be copy & paste (file scm/define-note-names.scm
contains all the note name definitions in all languages).

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))

As a result, myNames contains all English note definitons plus the custom
do, re, and mi.

You may even combine two or more existing languages:

combiNames = #(append
               (assoc-get 'english language-pitch-names)
               (assoc-get 'italiano language-pitch-names))

combiNames will then contain both English and Italian note name definitions.
