    I think its more common in Britain and assorted Commonwealths than in the US. It's from Cornwall is what I've heard. I've seen Tamsins, Tamsyns, and Tamzins out here.

    I like it for being tailored and un-fussy but not a boy's name. Its like a crisp white button-down shirt. But with just a waft of fairytale to it, a bit like Briar in that regard.

    I don't love it quite as much as I love Thomasin or Tamar, but its miles ahead of Tasmin.

    Def. Tasnim, I love the meaning and the pronounciation sounds nothing like tasman(ian). Tasman is Dutch, Tasnim Arabic...

    This is an old thread. :/

    That being said, I prefer Jasmin or Tamsin to Tasmin. Tasmin seems made up or misspelled. It is pleasing to the ear though, but I think that is just because it is similar to Jasmin, which I like.

    I never thought of Tasmin/Tasman as an actual name apart from Abel Tasman/the Tasman sea so I'm Tamsin all the way, I feel out of the two it's more feminie without being overly so, the nn Tammy, Tamsy, Tansy or even as suggested above Tess are all appealing to me.

    Interesting. learned something new. So i am not familiar with it in context, but just reading it and seeing it, Tamsin doesn't sound/look very feminine to me (although Thomasina does, though that makes me think antiquated).
