Entity Framework Code First: How to specify the index name

I’m using code first to generate my database. I will also be using Full Text for searching. However, I cant create the full text index programatically because the primary key index name given by EF is random. Is there a way to explicitly set this?

For example, I have an Items class like below:

public class Item
{
public string ItemId { get; set; }
public string ShortName { get; set; }
public decimal Price { get; set; }
public string Description { get; set; }
public string ImageUri { get; set; }
public string Tags { get; set; }
public int CategoryId { get; set; }
public string LastModifiedBy { get; set; }
public virtual User LastModifiedBy { get; set; }
public virtual ItemCategory Category { get; set; }
public virtual ICollection<ItemMetaDataValue> MetaData{get;set;}
public virtual ICollection<PriceHistoryLog> PriceHistory { get; set; }
}

Now I want to EF to create a full text catalog for the Tags property so I would call something like this using the DbContext.SqlCommand() method.

CREATE FULLTEXT CATALOG [DEFAULT]WITH ACCENT_SENSITIVITY = OFF
AS DEFAULT
AUTHORIZATION [dbo]
CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX ON [dbo].[Items] KEY INDEX [PK__Items__727E838B07020F21] ON ([DEFAULT]) WITH (CHANGE_TRACKING AUTO)
ALTER FULLTEXT INDEX ON [dbo].[Items] ADD ([Tags])
ALTER FULLTEXT INDEX ON [dbo].[Items] ENABLE

However, as you might notice, the primary key index name is not what I expect it to be: PK_Items_727E838B07020F21. Is there anyway to explicitly specify this key?

Thanks.
