Cimicifuga is the top one, or is it now Actaea? Probably simplex.

2nd is Phytolaca americana

Both of these berries are poisonous.

And in any case the vast majority of plant names are in almost any other language than Latin.

And most people know far more correct Botanical names than they think.

Cyclamen, Crocus, Chrysanthemum, Cornus, Dianthus, Cotoneaster.....I could name dozens, but won't. All of these are the Latinised names for plants.

Fumaria officinalis.and would you believe it is related to Poppies?

One of the few plants like this which so far have not been renamed.
