A “Suggested” section indicates common alternative choices you can choose from. Additionally, there is an “All” option which displays the list of all the languages you can select in the Google Maps app.
As 9To5Google noted, to be precise, there are a total of 79 languages that a user can choose from. Once you have chosen your preferred language, the app will restart to take into account the language change and download the language pack in the background.
