Did the ancient Greeks and Romans really worship the same Gods?


My understanding from school is that the Greeks and Romans worshipped (or at least believed in) the same Gods, but used different names. I always thought it would be like if your name was “John” in English, it would be “Juan” in Spanish, but the same person nonetheless.

Today, many different religions also have different names for the God that originally revealed himself to Abraham as a burning bush (e.g., “Allah,” “Jehovah,” or just “God”).

So, was it like that?

Well they in theory did worship the same gods. But the Roman believed that they worshipped the more powerful/holy versions of those gods
