Sure! Try ido-mode. Also, you may like to enable flex matching for your
purpose:

,----[ C-h v ido-enable-flex-matching RET ]
| ido-enable-flex-matching is a variable defined in `ido.el'.
| Its value is nil
| 
| 
| Documentation:
| *Non-nil means that `ido' will do flexible string matching.
| Flexible matching means that if the entered string does not
| match any item, any item containing the entered characters
| in the given sequence will match.
| 
| You can customize this variable.
