Calamari is Squid and Pulpo is Octopus in spanish...the two are always mixed up and mistaken.

Sepia is Cuttlefish and are often eaten in those Goya cans like Octopus.

I think much of Greek cuisine does incorporate octopus (and often called 'calamari'). And I have definitely seen what is billed as 'squid' turn out to be octopus once it arrives on the plate - not everyone realizes that giving an accurate name is important, since some people will happily eat one but not the other.
