no, there isn't. but this is not a difficult thing to do.
they should be defined in a file called "english.ly" inside the "ly"
directory in the sources. for instance, this is how the note names are
defined in duch ("nederlands.ly" file):

dutchPitchnames = #`(
        (ceses . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 DOUBLE-FLAT))

        (ceh . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 SEMI-FLAT))
        (ces . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 FLAT))
        (ceseh . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 THREE-Q-FLAT))
        (c . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 NATURAL))
        (cis . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 SHARP))
        (cih . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 SEMI-SHARP))
        (cisih . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 THREE-Q-SHARP))
        (cisis . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 DOUBLE-SHARP))
        (deses . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 1 DOUBLE-FLAT))

if you fell like you can add it yourself (and send the result back to
the list) or wait ultil someone does. what do you think of these names
(first column):

        (cf . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 DOUBLE-FLAT))
        (cftqt . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 THREE-Q-FLAT))
        (cf . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 FLAT))
        (cfqt . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 SEMI-FLAT))
        (c . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 NATURAL))
        (csqt . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 SEMI-SHARP))
        (cs . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 SHARP))
        (cstqt . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 THREE-Q-SHARP))
        (css . ,(ly:make-pitch -1 0 DOUBLE-SHARP))
