Although titled similarly to the Persona series as published in America, the Shin Megami Tensei series is not related.

It's related in the sense that Persona was a spin-off of Shin Megami Tensei and has a lot of the same fictionalized mythological figures in it.

Just to add, in Japan the first Persona had the "Megami Ibunroku" prefix while the rest of the Persona series (2IS, EP, 3 and 4) had no prefixes.

Atlus USA uses the SMT prefix for name recognition since SMT: Nocturne really helped made the series popular in the US.
