Like the two commentors above said, Jasmin isn't just a modern English version of Jasmine! Jasmin is also the "normal" way of spelling Jasmine in German speaking countries. I have a friend named Jasmin, who I think the name really suits.

I love the name Jasmin using the German pronunciation YAS-meen. However, I am afraid if used in the U.S. people would mistake it for a poor varitation of Jasmine. So I guess I am torn on my opinion of this name because you would always have to correct people. I love the German pronunciation and disfavor the English pronunciation.

The German dance-music star who once went by the stage name Blümchen is named Jasmin Wagner.

Believe it or not, Jasmin is a masculine name in Albania and Bosnia. Over there, the feminine form is Jasmina. I know an Albanian with this name, and he is male. On top of that, it's pronounced differently. But to English ears, it sounds like a feminine name, so I can understand why someone would use it on a girl.

To me it's just tacky.

I'm Finnish and this is my name. I kind of like it but hate that everyone makes so stupid nicknames of it. It was very popular name in Finland in 90's.

Jasmin is also a modern Finnish name. As jass- said, it was very popular in the '90s (many names starting with J were very trendy then and Disney's 'Aladdin' might have helped too). Pronunciation is YUS-min.
Jasmine (three syllables: YUS-mi-NE) is a rarer variant.

My name's Tasmin and I get this all the time. It's kind of irritating, because that's really not my name. I even had to change the way I wrote the letter T so people wouldn't get it wrong.
