Based on this comment, the bug is in LO: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1589215/comments/23
Could this be fixed?
A more precise issue:
I can confirm this issue on Ubuntu with Unity 7. You can fix it manually by adding ‘env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity’ to every 'Exec=' line in the .desktop files, so it's probably a LO issue.
There is also a discussion in the Unity Development thread on community.ubuntu.com:

LibreOffice under Unity 7 with fixed menu
Here is a screenshot of LO 126.96.36.199 under Ubuntu 18.04 with Unity 7 and the applied 'env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity' workaround. As you can see, the 'Unknown Application Name' is gone and the Gnome App Menu also don't get loaded under Unity as it should be.
Searching in the internet, I found the XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP has changed from Unity to Unity:Unity7:ubuntu. I'm wordering if https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/60489/ would fix it...
Anyone with Unity7 could try it ?

I can test it, if you tell me how.
Let's close this as a dupe of bug 119881, which is the way to fix this, by iterating over the colons...
