For instance, in Welsh the alphabet starts a, b, c, ch, d, dd, etc.

Is there a way to automatically alter the ordering of lists to match this?

You could define a command for this purpose. Use that command in defining the label. Here's an example:

  \ifcase#1\or a\or b\or c\or ch\or d\or dd\or ... \else\@ctrerr\fi}
  \ifcase#1\or A\or B\or C\or ... \else\@ctrerr\fi}
\item One
\item Two
\item Three
\item Four
\item Five
\item Six
