"short_name": "My Extension"

Short name for the extension. If given, this will be used in contexts where the name field is too long. It's recommended that the short name should not exceed 12 characters. If the short name field is not included in manifest.json, then name will be used instead and may be truncated. 

This is a localizable property.
