Here is the corrected URL [hopefully] to get the larger color list file.
Actually it is to the folder that contains the file.
if this does not work, let me know.
Take this file "standard--kpp-2000-plus-colors.soc"
and rename it to "standard.soc"
and place it in the proper folder, shown below, and there you have it.
Restart LO to activate the new color list for font and other color options.

Here is a question, and answer. . .
How can I add more colors to the list that is shown in Writer and
Calc, when you choose a font color or the background color for a "cell"?
Well you could add one, one at a time, through LO's internal ability
to add colors. That is not the way I am talking about, this time.
There is a "standard.soc" file that is used to store the Hex color
code and name, along with the order that color is in the list.
You can always add a large number of colors to that file. I sure did.
One person on these lists helped me out with this "idea" and I build a
"whopper" of a color list.
Of course there may be some overlapping of colors, but I think that it
is OK, since there are several different color set listed on my file.
Some of the color names and the associated Hex codes might not be
listed correctly, but I was relying on others for these codes and
names. I have a HTML page of color names and codes that are different
than any other list I have seen, but that is OK as long as the color
is what you want, whatever the name is.
One of the color "lists" is the "Branding Colors" for LibreOffice.
Things like the official Green 2 and Yellow 3.
So where is this file located? I have not looked for it, yet on a
Windows system, but you can search for it easily enough. For Ubuntu,
LO 4.x stores the file in the following area:
note: make sure your "Show hidden files" option is checked so you can
see the ".config" folder listed in your "Home" folder.
For me it is - - "timothy/.config/libreoffice/4/user/config"
since my home folder's user name is "timothy".
rename the old "standard.soc" file as "standard.soc--old.txt" or
something that shows you it was the original one..
copy the new one in its place.
Well, to get you started, here is the one I use. It is about 2000
colors listings in size. I kept the original color list at the top of
the file and added the LO "Branding Colors" next, then just started
adding other sets of colors I was given.
The format is shown below.
First the color's Hex code, then the name associated with that color.

Here is a list of some of the colors in the HTML file I talked about
[above] with the interesting color names. I will add them to the
"standard.soc" file, one of these days. How many of you could use one
of the "Chocolate" colors or how about "Snow". "Gold" is always good,
but the list did not have "silver" or "copper" in it. It does have
100 versions of Gray, from the darkest [nearly black] to the lightest
