    CallerID is sent by the originating carrier, according to their rules. You can contact Google to see whether they have other choices, but I strongly doubt it. A carrier normally picks a format and stays with it.

    You can dial *67 before the number you're calling (for instance, *67123 456 7890) and they won't see any callerID.

    To my knowledge Google Fi caller ID defaults to the town you're calling from. If you talk to Support they can change that to "Wireless Caller". They don't ever put your full name I don't think. I'm not even end sure they have ever the capability for that.

    My caller ID comes from the town associated with the exchange that my fi number is associated with. And that town is 45 miles away. It never shows my name. I have asked for this to be changed, according to support it cannot.
