Bash does not show up on the Confluence page for a code snippet

On Settings, Code Macro Admin, I see Bash as a potential default language. I cannot add a language only set the default. On a Confluence page, in a code snippet, Bash does not show up. How can I set Bash on the Confluence page?

Bash used to be part of the list when confluence had the code block Macro. I believe for the code snippet, shell is used instead. 

Thanks. Just seems odd that we can set Bash as a default language and it doesn't show up on the selection list for the page. 

The Code Block macro is still available if you use the Legacy Editor template, but Atlassian should really make the new Code Snippet macro support bash syntax!
