Get from microsoft the font properties extension

It will add an extended properties dialog to fonts with more
accurate names of the fonts. In general the "font family name" works
best, optionally together with the font subfamily name. E.g. for
latin modern 

Latin Modern Roman
Latin Modern Roman 10 Regular

(It should also be possible to use fc-list to get all the names, but
I never really found out the correct syntax to use).
