What are all the elements that have latin names do we need to know?

Are you referring to something like silver versus Ag?

If so, I assume that we would need to know everything on the periodic table that is commonly used. However the periodic table on his website has both the name of the element used and the symbol

One was that was used commonly in the book is ferrate, referring to iron in anions that are negative.

I think what you're looking for is the "Naming Coordination Compounds" link midway down on Professor Lavelle's ucla website.

Latin names are used when the element symbol is derived from its Latin name and the overall coordination sphere has a negative charge.
Some examples would be ferrate for iron (Fe), cuprate for copper (Cu), plumbate for lead(Pb), argentate for silver(Ag), aurate for gold (Au), and stannate for tin (Sn).
