Of course. Use the data- attribute.

Example:
<option name="option_one" id="option_one" data-whatever="additional_data_one" data-something="additional_data_two">OPTION ONE</option>

I'm not sure what the point of all that is since you have no 'value' in your options.  The 'value' is what gets submitted when you submit the form.
