Geany requires the tag type long name to be one of the known ones as
seen in tagmanager/src/tm_tag.c:s_tag_type_names[] array.  This is to
translate them to a numeric ID we use internally.  And no, unknown name
don't become tm_tag_other_t but tm_tag_undef_t.

Also, not all types may be displayed,
src/symbols.c:tag_list_add_groups() decides which type are displayed as
what -- if your language don't follow the common
function/class/interface/structure/variables/… scheme you may want to
add your language-specific case to give the proper title to the groups.
