Help translating 3rd great grandfather's baptism record

I have attached an image of my 3rd great grandfather's baptism record.
It is from Helsingborgs landsförsamling birth records 1798-1825 page 14.
His name was Petter Fältman and he was born 12 Dec 1798. I have seen his name spelled Peter, Petter and in the baptism record the name is Pehr. I believe this is him since the last name is unusual. I have been hoping to trace back the name Fältman to see when it originated.
Are Pehr and Petter the same name? Like John and Jack here in the US.
Thanks.
