docker-compose.my-custom-name.yml instead of docker-compose.yml – can it work?

  docker, docker-compose

I start to work with a new project using Docker and I can see there is no docker-compose.yml file there, but a few files like docker-compose.myname1.yml, docker-compose.myname2.yml instead. Trying to run docker-compose up I get an error:

ERROR: 
        Can't find a suitable configuration file in this directory or any
        parent. Are you in the right directory?

        Supported filenames: docker-compose.yml, docker-compose.yaml

So I wonder if that’s possible for a Docker project to work without the docker-compose.yml file and if it is, what conditions should be met. Maybe that’s the matter of some specific version or environment?
