I created a SPContentType of my own. In the Sharepoint Site Settings I see all the default content types with names in my language (polish). How can I change display names for my own content types?

When I wanted to create my own SPContentType inheriting from "Item" I needed to use the English/internal name of the SPContentType "Item", not the polish name "Element", so I suppose there must be a way to add my own display name for a SPContentType. Can anyone help?
