    Yes, actually you can.

    You can make the custom URL where you would add your own words instead of form ID. It works by using your username as part of the URL so it is best to decide on the username that you want to go with (if you are not happy with the current one for example) before you share the link.

    To see more about the custom naming of your forms, you could check out the following guide: How to create a Custom URL of a form?

    *It is good to point out that the form will still be available over direct URL (with form ID as you have shared it), even if the username of your account is changed, while the custom URL depends on the username, so once it is changed the custom URL no longer works (the username part would need to be updated in the URL).
