Odin/Wotan/Woden/Wodan/Wodanaz…All the same deity?

I’m keen to hear from people who have worked with Odin in the past.

I’ve heard some people consider all of the different names for the deity to be different aspects of him. I’ve heard people say that Odin is the dark form of the god, Wotan is more his war/warrior aspect, Woden and Wodan are his “peace loving wise old man” type aspects whilst Wodanaz is the more his poetic, primeval aspect.

Has that been your experience?
