Can I set a custom name of a task or task run at run-time in Prefect 2.0?

Here is an example:

from prefect import flow, task, get_run_logger

def task_1(number):
    logger = get_run_logger()"This is number {number}")
    return number

def flow_1(number: int=1):
    a = task_1.with_options(name=f"Get {number}")(number)

if __name__ == "__main__":

thanks for the example. is there a way to provide custom name of the ‘humongous-ringtail’ bit?

Is this important to you? In the UI, you can see the flow ru page, you can see the flow name as a prefix
