This is the pattern I use for such re-naming:

        <match target="pattern">
                <test name="family">
                <edit name="family" mode="prepend" binding="same">

(Based on someone else's post here....)
Do be sure you use the exact family names.


:; FC_DEBUG=4 fc-list Helvetica

to see the patterns; FC_DEBUG=8 may also be useful, if a bit verbose.
