First looks like variegated ground elder, second is lily of the valley.

Agree with LOV but the first one, variegated leaves, is Aegopodium.
Bishop's Weed (Aegopodium podagraria 'Variegatum')

Welcome to the site! re whether they are weeds are not, both can be very aggressive depending on the site.
As Yogi Berra said, “It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

Maddening to eliminate. Just when you think you've conquered them, they return.

Rolling on the floor laughing I agree
I made a mistake years ago and planted the Variegated Bishop's Weed. It popped up everywhere in no time. A neighbor has it in her garden too. It has turned green and runs everywhere.

I love Lily of the Valley, though and have a small patch of it on the parkway in full sun. It does not run much and has such a lovely fragrance right now.

We gardeners must be optimists by nature. We tend to think a plant will stay in the spot where we think it will do best, but plants do their own thing and wander as watch amazed by their growth. I once had a little patch of LOV but that expanded to the nth degree. I had the majority dug out but some roots must have remained. I do enjoy the scent but wish it would calm down and behave (as I want).
