Heracles, Hercules, same guy. Hercules is the Roman name, Heracles the Greek.

And just to round this off cleanly, Heracles was the character portrayed in the Disney movie, not Hercules. Odd that they would use the Greek setting but the roman name for the hero. But, clearly Disney doesn't care about correct mythology, so we shouldn't argue about it in reference to them.

Actually when asked, Disney said that they used his Roman name because they thought more people would recognize Hercules than those that would recognize Heracles
