That's absolutely correct >from a linguistic point of view, but...
for a person doing genealogical research, when looking at metrical
records, they both mean exactly the same thing, namely that the
individual in question was also by known by this other name.
Much the same way that "alias" and "aka" have different origins (and
are subtly different), but indicate the same thing.
