If you've installed the font where fontconfig (and therefore xetex)  
can find it, you can run fc-list and look at the output (filter  
through sort, grep, etc to find what you want).

Or if you're running a desktop such as Gnome, it probably has a way  
to examine fonts; on my Ubuntu machine I can right-click a font file  
and "open with GNOME Font Viewer". Or you can look at the font menu/ 
dialog of a typical GUI application; xetex will generally recognize  
the same names.

Or you can try guessing! :-) In many cases, an "obvious" font name  
will work. Unfortunately, that's not true with Latin Modern, though,  
because of how the multitude of faces are organized. (A topic for  
further discussion, some time in the future.)
