Topic: Automating a merge of PDF files

I am looking to find out if Acrobat has a way to automate the merging of files that I get from a client. Here is the basic run down:
I have a folder of PDF’s (usually in the 100’s) that have a standardized naming convention:
I then have to merge the matching files together:
WK15_FLYER_FullPg_D1_D2_D3.pdf with WK15_FLYER_HalfPg_D1_D2_D3.pdf
WK15_FLYER_FullPg_C1_C2_C3.pdf with WK15_FLYER_HalfPg_C1_C2_C3.pdf
To get: Version_D1_D2_D3.pdf
Is there a way for Acrobat to “read’ the file name and merge the like files together automatically? In other words can Acrobat read the file names, understand that the files ending with “_D1_D2_D3” should be merged together? Can it merge more than two PDF's?
Right now I have to do each merge manually which eats up A LOT of my time. If anyone can tell me if this is possible or not and point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.
