You are:

A dictionary

Clues:

I am small. I am large.

Dictionaries come in different sizes some small some large

You call it I name it,

Dictionaries give concepts names

You name it I have it.

If it has been named, an extensive dictionary will have it with its definition

Want to add it to me? You would need a lot of support.

I'm assuming there is some committee or process that requires support from others to add new words to a dictionary

    $\begingroup$ Another possible explanation I feel for small/large would be it contains a large amount of information in a small package. $\endgroup$ – TaylorAllred Apr 25 '16 at 22:42
