So its incorrectly rendering the 'Narad' name with the font and doesnt show a font sample on the right.
Please give a link where to get the font.
You can download the font here
This font is not a Devanagari Opentype font. Its Latin-1 encoded with devanagari glyphs, or custom encoded one.
Not to be used for Devanagari based languages on LibreOffice.
What is seen in preview is glyphs encoded for letters in 'Narad'. So for the font preview is correct.

Sample doc with font used.
Sample text with two lines containing 'Narad' . Second line has Narad font applied. Same gets shown in font preview.
Have a glyph map from fontforge but not attaching since might raise copyright issue.

Many symbol fonts also use Latin-1 to place its glyphs in it, so we dont show the font name encoded with the glyphs.
Khaled, Stuart: thoughts?
Yes but this is a seriously broken font. It is not suited for use as Unicode with no coverage of Devangari (0970-097f, A8E0-A8ff), just questionable encoding on Basic Latin/Latin-1 supplement. It is not even a proper symbol font, just glyphs incorrectly assigned.
There is nothing we can do correctly or otherwise with this font. Nor can any other Unicode based program.
Agreed, not a bug.
