    Yes, you can customize the field name variables even if you are on a free account. However, the custom name is only for the notifications and thank you pages. On the form source code, custom names are always prefixed with a question ID. e.g. q12_mycustomname

    To change the field name, open the field properties.

    Double-click the name to change it.


    On the form source code, fields names are prefixed with question ID.

    Hope this helps!
