Yes. Bitcoin Core 0.16.0 introduced a multiwallet feature which is currently for the RPC interface only (the GUI part will come with the next major release). To have multiple wallets, start Bitcoin Core with the -wallet=<wallet name> option or add wallet=<wallet name> to your bitcoin.conf file. You must specify this option for each wallet you want to load.

For example, if you want to have two wallets named wallet1 and wallet2, you would start Bitcoin Core as:

bitcoin-qt -wallet=wallet1 -wallet=wallet2

or add the following to your bitcoin.conf file
