Gender: F Origin of Jasmine: Persian flower name Jasmine's Popularity in 2013: #103

Popularity: this week.

Jasmine, a delicate and aromatic flower name, burst into popularity after the 1992 release of Disney's Aladdin, featuring Princess Jasmine -- highly unusual then for an animated character. Propagating a garden of spelling variations, Jasmine remained solidly in the Top 50 until 2009, when it started to wilt. It is now at Number 103, and is in a Top 50 name in England.

Jasmine was first used as a flower name in the West around 1900, during the blossoming of floral-name fashion, but it can be traced back to ancient Persia, where scented oil was made from the plant.

Michael Jordan, Martin Lawrence and Nigel Barker all have daughters named Jasmine. Variants include Jazmin, Yasmin, Yasmine, and Jessamine.
