Don't use GIMP to scroll through fonts, use Font It is 
designed to let you search, organise and manage your fonts.

OSX is preventing you from doing something harmful. Ordinarily you 
ought not remove and/or rename System files, nor (as a rule) whould you 
add files to the OSX System/Library. Most OSX fonts are not located in 
/System/Library/Fonts, but are by default located in Library/Fonts, but 
it is also probably a bad idea to change the file names for fonts in 
this location too. However, if you are set on this appraoach then you 
will probably be better to copy/duplicate font files accross to 
/Users/your_user_name/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/fonts, and 
make any changes to the font file names in this location.
