Can i name a custom field?

I have created many custom fields. I a now creating plugin for JIRA.

My problem is JIRA creating custom fields with auto generated Ids and names like customfield_10700.

Can i name my custom fields as well. For example name for text box like "txt_box" instead of customfield_10700.

createCustomField(String fieldName, String description, CustomFieldType fieldType, CustomFieldSearcher customFieldSearcher, List contexts, List issueTypes)
