Are there any difference between the below names, or are they sinonymous?

Dependent clause - Subordinate clause/Subordinating
Adjective clause - Relative clause.

Dependent clause - Subordinate clause/Subordinating
A dependent clause is the same as a subordinate (not subordinating) clause. A conjunction that introduces a subordinate clause (e.g. if, although, as, when, because) is a subordinating conjunction.

Adjective clause - Relative clause.
Yes, these are synonymous. Note, however, that 'adjective phrase' is a wider term – it need not contain a finite verb.

I know the man who is standing over there — adjective clause/relative clause.
I know the man standing over there — adjective phrase.
