Gender: Female Origin of Jasmine: Persian flower name Jasmine's Popularity in 2017: #130

The name Jasmine is a girl's name of Persian origin. Jasmine is ranked #130 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Gorgeous Flower Names for Babies and discussed in our forums with posts like "Adding Then Eliminating -- Girls Themed".

From the experts:

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.

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.

My cocker spaniel’s name is Jasmine and she is beautiful. She was originally going to be “Summer”, but I’m so glad we went with Jasmine in the end as it suits her perfectly. I was twelve when she came to us and my family and I were in the car discussing names. My family discussed Ruby, Hollie and Summer ... and I suggested Jasmine for two reasons;

1.) It was the name of several popular and pretty girls at my school, so I associated the name with beauty.

2.) I loved Princess Jasmine (Aladdin).

Now my Jasmine is nearly eleven years old and the name still suits her. When we get another puppy, we are thinking about the name Willow.

I love Jasmine and the nickname Minny.

JasmineDaisy Says:


I've only ever heard compliments towards my name. It is a very strong and feminine name. It can be flower-y and airy for a child but also serious and mature for an adult.

Thepandaprincess223 Says:


I only recently came across the name Jasmine as pretty, and not boring. I love the sent of Jasmine and I think it is quite pretty.

headintheclouds Says:


I'm rather surprised at the current popularity of Jasmine-- I've always thought it more of a dated name like Amber, Heather, and trendy specifically to my generation (current early- to mid-twenty somethings) from the boom following the release of Disney's Aladdin. I objectively like the sound of Jasmine- sounds sweet and strong, not among my favorite floral names but is pretty enough (prefer Jessamine though). I view the different Yasmin/Yasmeen/Yazmin variants as being separate from Jasmine though- those seem more ethnically and culturally specific names to me, while Jasmine seems more all-around popular.

JazzDeSaturn Says:


This is my name and most people seem to like it. But I doubt anyone would say they hated your name to your face, lol (online however...who knows)! My NN growing up was Jazzy but now I mostly go by Jazz or my full name. I think the name is very popular. Every Jasmine I know though spells their name slightly different (reminds me of Jackson in that respect). When all Jasmine variations are taken into account I bet this name is far more popular than it appears! It's also a multicultural name and though I've never met anyone of European descent with the name, I hear it is popular in England and France too :)

katinka Says:


I'm surprised this is ranking so highly - #49 in the UK in 2014! I've only ever met one Jasmine and she's my age (23) and goes by Jazzy; I've never met or even heard of a little Jasmine.

I do like the name - I find it sweet, strong and exotic. I'm not too keen on Jazzy though... maybe Jas, Min or Mina would make for nice, less in-your-face nicknames.

Caroline Says:


It is so exotic!! Definitely the only flower name that I like!

i do not have any human children yet, but Jasmine is the name I definitely want for a girl!
