Hit F1 for help and you get "Name: Displays the name of the selected style. If you are creating or modifying a custom style, enter a name for the style. You cannot change the name of a predefined style."

So its not "broken" per-se, but working as documented. You can use "new style from selection" and change an existing style to take the properties of the custom paragraph you've created, or create a new style with a new name. The name of such a new style *can* be changed, but the built-in style names can't.
