can I provision a list instance in SharePoint 2013 that has following configuration:

Title:"My Custom List"

Is this possible? I tried just changing the URL attribute of a list, but then I got multiple errors of SharePoint not finding things. So is this even possible? I know I could use C#, but a purely declarative approach would be much cleaner.


Yes it possible, in the Url you need to specify the site-relative url.

Try it as below:

<ListInstance Title="My Custom List"
              Description="MyCustomList desciption">

Reference - List Instance

FYI - Lists don't have internal name or name, they only have Title, Description(optional), URL(rootfolder) and TemplateType (like custom list, doc lib, calendar etc) . So, yes it's perfectly valid for title and URL to be different.
