Change the title of a custom object's record

Hi there!
I would like to know if it is possible to change the title of a custom object. Because when I open a record on one of my custom object I have something like that: "a0X2g000000HTa0 | Salesforce". The field that is used to display the custom object is "Preview URL Name" which is the standard default field and the primary key when you create a custom object.
I would like to change the title of the record using one of my custom field called "Title" but don't see any option on page layout and on Lightning Record.
Does anyone knows how to do that?
Best regards,

As per custom objects posted to chatter have the auto-number in the header line.
