Apple has info for login option below.

Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Users & Groups, then click Login Options.

Automatic login

Choose Off to require users to log in whenever the Mac restarts.

To automatically log in a particular user when the Mac restarts, choose the user’s account name and enter his or her password. This option is useful if the Mac has only one user and is always in a secure location. If security is a concern, automatic login should be off. When FileVault is enabled, automatic login is disabled.

Display login window as

To let users choose from a list of user names when logging in so that they don’t have to remember their user names, select “List of users.”

To require users to enter both user name and password when logging in, select “Name and password.”

When you setup FileVault, have you set the option of Enable Users?

Filevault puts up its own login window to decrypt the drive.  It also uses that to accept the password that works for both the account and Filevault.  You need to go to the Filevault system preference to add each user that you wish to allow to decrypt filevault.

You can do it without enabling your account, but you'll have to first log in and decrypt the drive with the allowed account.  Once the drive is decrypted, you can log out and you will get the old login window you set with your Users and Groups preferences.  You can then log in with any account that's allowed to log in on your system.
