In Wordpress, when creating a page, it shows some options for Template under Attributes, such as: Default, Links, One column no sidebar, etc.

Is there a way to add more custom templates to show up here? If so, how?

All you need to do is just create a new file in your theme root directory. This file must start with following code:

 * Template Name: No Sidebars

Name your file, for example, page_nosidebars.php and then WP will add No Sidebars template to available templates list.

There is nice article about it Creating Custom Page Templates. I think it will help you to create your own.

You can create your own template for pages. Below link shows the example of creating template.

create a php file and save in active theme folder.

Template Name: Snarfer

i think this may help u for creating template.
