Unfortunately, no. You can't name parties on appeal that weren't a part of the original lawsuit.
You may still have other options but you are going to have to sit down with a local lawyer that does civil litigation and a copy of all of the paperwork and let them review it.
There could be other potential causes of action that are still within the statute of limitations and, in addition, you might be able to assert what is known as a "misnomer" issue which essentially means that even though you got eh name incorrect, that the insurance company still knew they were being sued, etc. However, this is a very complex legal issue and you are going to have to have someone sort through it in person.
Please ask any follow up questions in this thread.
