Yes, I did it, just leave the name blank when making it in shortcuts.
I haven't tried theming icons yet but I hope someone comes up with a way to script or make some sort of app that makes theming icons and removing the app names a lot easier. Looks sooooo much cleaner without the names. It's definitely what I miss most about my android days. That and I still feel like Android's notification pulldown screen is a bit cleaner and easier to use.
