Dorico has its own way of handling instrument numbering, as you might be aware, and it's grabbing the last number off the end of the name and treating it as an automatic number.
I'll try to think of a possible workaround you might be able to use in the meantime, but my gut feeling is that with Dorico's current behaviour you may well not be able to get the result that you want, which I know is pretty bad.

For a project I was working on myself recently I ended up having to work around Dorico's limitations in staff labeling by setting the instruments to have no names at all (by using the Edit Name dialog accessed from the instrument held by each player in the Players panel), and then resorted to putting in the required names using Shift+X text. This is obviously a very long way from ideal. In my case, I only needed to show the names at the start of each flow, because it was a work for choir and organ and it was not necessary to show the names on each system, so this wasn't too laborious, but it wouldn't have been much fun if I would have had to have done this at the start of every system.
We are hoping to make some progress on these kinds of issues before the next update, but at this stage I can't guarantee that we will manage it.
