Catalogue of Life has some but it's not comprehensive for all languages; I think GBIF has some also.

Subject: [Taxacom] Plant common names

Hi everyone,

This might have been discussed in the list at some point, but I could not find anything searching the archives.

Is there an online database of plant common names (relating them to the appropriate scientific)? I am especially interested in sources that have names in other languages in addition to English.

I would appreciate any suggestion!
