It is actually pretty easy to do this with a mod (it takes one file for each names list and one file to give every list a unique name). The main problem is the fact that adding names list modifies the checksum and therefore disables achievements.

Also let us mix-and-match namelists! I want the Leader Names of Arthropoid 1 and the Fleet Names of Avian 2!

It doesn't just mess with the checksum it also forces my friends to get this mod from me if I want to bring it into multiplayer. That's a lot of hassle that really shouldn't be there.

Secondly:
modding is also scary for some people, a easy to use UI in the game would open the door for custom names to everyone instead of just me and you.
