Richard Mabey in Flora Britannica under Anthriscus sylvestris lists

Queen Anne's Lace, Fairy lace, Spanish lace. Kex, kecksie, Queque, Mother die, Step mother, Grandpas's pepper, Hedge parsley, Badman's oatmeal, Blackman's tobacco and rabbit meat  Not a bad collection.

Daucus carota just gets wild carrot and bird's nest.

It's the sort you keep indoors and put slides in. Fascinating. We should use it more often
