    Jessamine - How Would You Pronounce It?

    Could you please let me know how you'd pronounce it?
    I pronounce it like Jasmine, with the -min ending.
    I'm wondering if others would say it -min or -meen.

    I voted for MEEN, but I've never actually met someone with that name so I'm just guessing. It's pretty either way though. :-)

    The plant, yellow jessamine or Carolina jessamine, is pronounced "jessa-min." http://www.merriam-webster.com/medic...ow%20jessamine

    That's how I say it.
