I love this name because the sound is so pretty. In Asian countries, we make a flower of jasmine into tea, which has such a good flavour.

It's overused. (Hint - never say the name Jasmine in a store)

Not a personal pick, but definitely very pretty!

It is also Arabic name and means the same thing.
amani83  3/22/2006
I love the name Jasmine, it makes me think of sweetness, because of the taste of jasmine tea, and also because I knew a girl called Jasmine and she was so tender-hearted and good-natured.

I love the name Jasmine. Not too overly popular and the nicknames for it are really cute.

My oldest daughter is named Jasmine. When we named her, we wouldn't even consider spelling it different. A friend was giving us different variations of spelling it, but we went with the classic spelling. We call her Jaz or Jazzy.
Guadalupe78  7/17/2006
I love this name, it's very sensous and reminds me of the flower jasmine, which is gorgeous and smells lovely. But I hate when people deaden it by shortening it to 'Min' or 'Minnie'. If this is your name, you are very lucky - appreciate it!

I really love the way this sounds. It's a shame so many people find it "trashy".
claraelizabethann  8/28/2006
I think it's over used, and really a bad TRASHY name.
― Anonymous User  11/24/2006
Do not pay attention to the previous comment above this one. (I didn't write that! Someone else did) It is not really overused and it isn't trashy.

My cousin's name is Jazmine and I love her very much so I like this name although I would never use it.
― Anonymous User  12/8/2006
It is a pretty name but much too overused and common now. Every other little girl is a Jasmine these days.

It is actually a form of the Persian/Middle Eastern name Yasmin (like it says), I love this name it's very pretty. I know this girl named Jasmine she spells it Jasmin though.

It's beautiful, but too many snobby girls ruined the name for me.
7up  3/21/2007
Jasmine is a beautiful name. It is not Trashy at all. Why would it be? I know of some really trashy names and trust me, Jasmine is not on the list. Anyways, Jasmine is a beautiful name. It is a plant with fragrant flowers. Lovely smell and lovely tea :) Also, makes me think of a princess.
― Anonymous User  3/26/2007
The Jasmine plant has been used since Ancient times. It has been used for perfume, oils and tea among other wonderful things. Jasmine is a beautiful name because it represents beauty and sweetness. Jasmine has been used through the ages. I would definitely want my daughter to be named after something of beauty such as Jasmine.

Oh my god. This name is amazing. It is strong and beautiful, mysterious and magnificent. I love it. If you want to name any of your kids Jasmine good for you. It's a fantasic name. I mean it's daring and strong - yet beutiful and femmine at the same time. Perfect for any strong-willed, lovely girl. I LOVE THIS NAME.
bookdiva  6/21/2007
I think any name can be trashy if the person who owns it makes it trashy. Jasmine is a lovely name which grows well into adulthood. I know a little girl named Jasmine Beatrice and everyone calls her Jazzy B.

This seems to be the name of every whorish girl at school. It's a shame, really, because this isn't such a bad name.

I would bet money that 97% of children who have this name have parents who live in trailer parks and who came up with it after watching the Disney movie. Dumb name.

I think a set of twins named Jasmine (f) and Jackson (m) would be fun: Jazz and Jax!

blkbuttafly  1/3/2008
These people don't know what they're talking about. My name is Jasmine and I am not snobbish, neither am I trashy, nor do I live in a trailer park. Your name does not define who you are.
jasmineenimsaj  2/5/2008
I love this name, it sounds feminine but not girly and it reminds me of flowers and nature, which is a good association to me. The first time I heard this name was not when I saw Aladdin because in Dutch the name is pronounced quite different and not as pretty. A good friend of mine had a younger sister named Jasmine and they pronounced it the English way and I liked it. If a girl is still young she might really love the assoctiation with the Disney princess and when she's older, she probably doesn't care. Anyway, I'm thinking about using this as a middle name for a future daughter. I've considered spelling it Yasmin as well but I think I prefer the spelling Jasmine over it.

Jasmine Fenton is the older sister of Danny Fenton, the main character of the Nicktoon Danny Phantom. She goes almost exclusively by Jazz, but there are a few instances where her full name is mentioned.
meganmichele  6/24/2008
This name makes me feel all happy inside! (No, I'm not going crazy) But, really, It's not trashy at all. Please ignore the really rude comments, I mean, at least they could've said "No offense!" all those anonymous users that make BTN a bit miserable. ~sigh~ Anyway, back to the beautiful name! I certainly love it.
missBridget  7/13/2008
I don't like the name Jasmine - never have. I don't really think it's trashy; it just reminds me too much of the Princess from Aladdin.

I think this is a beautiful name. I love the fragrance of a Jasmine flower.

The Turkish version is Yasemin pronounced like it looks; yass-eh-meen. I think it is one of the prettier versions of Jasmine.
Arieanne  1/30/2009
Jasmine is unique, bespeaks liberty, is universal and beautiful. It means "gift from God." The flower Jasmine is pleasant to all senses and serves medicinal purposes. I love it!
bobbilee  3/1/2009
I think it's really stupid when people hate a name just because they've had bad experiences with others who have it. The name itself isn't trashy sounding at all.
Alaric  4/3/2009
To the person above me about having bad experiences with people with a certain name. Unfortunately, it *can* kill the good vibe for you. The names Melissa, Nicole, and (yes) Jasmine have been ruined in such a way, because the girls were just plain b*tches. They might be pretty names, but I could never use them for any children I have in the future, because of the people I've already met with those names.

Very exciting and amusing novels for vampire-lovers!

Jasmine is a beautiful name - my mother almost called me this, but the 'Flower' nickname bothered her. I've known two people with this name; they were both confident and cheerful people, so there is always an association of liveliness in this name for me.

I like this name because it's pretty and it always makes me think of pink sequins.

JASMINA is the Croatian form. A very popular girls name, especially in the 1970's and 80's.
goricar  12/22/2009
It doesn't sound awful, but face it, it's trashy. I was raised in a working/lower middle class place and like 4-5 girls had it. They were all obnoxious, ghetto, and rude.
Aureliano  2/27/2010
According to the US Social Security Administration, the name Jasmine entered the list of the top 1000 girl names in 1973 and broke the top 50 in 1989 (3 years before the release of Disney's Aladdin). Not surprisingly, though, it was most popular in 1993 and 1994, coming in at #23 both years.

My mother named me Jazmine in 1986 when the 's' spelling was 95th and my 'z' spelling was 859, having only broken the top 1000 the previous year. She chose it because it was uncommon. Nowadays, the name is rampantly used (with a variant of spellings, some crazier than others. "Jazzmynn", anyone?) and negatively associated with adult entertainers and girls from low socio-economic backgrounds, which is a pity because the name itself is pleasant-sounding, makes for really fun nicknames, and has a lovely etymology.

I like my name most of the time, sometimes wishing for a more dignified moniker, but mostly loving the unique spelling and all-around fun-loving associations.
luckycharm  3/16/2010
This is my name, I was born 1980 and back then when I was in elementary and junior high, this was a very usual and rare name, a likeable name by most, I like the look of it. Then I guess when it was around 1990, after Disney made the Aladdin movie, this name became very popular, too popular, been overused since, and it does bother me a bit, especially when I have a very common last name. I like my pet names, Jassy/Jazz sounds cool to me. Trashy or not has much to do with the bearers, not so much on the name itself.
Purrsian  4/28/2010
Since, there was a princess (fake or real) named "Jasmine", I think it sort of gives the name a royal impression. And because all flowers are beautiful, I'm sure any girl named Jasmine would be beautiful (in their own way). Plus, it's just a nice name. And, anyone who loves music, would probably name their daughter Jasmine, then call her Jazz. Especially if they love Jazz music best. So, I could see myself naming a daughter this. I'm even writing a story, where the lead character's name is Jasmine.
Myth Writer Dreamer  5/10/2010
This name is one of my guilty pleasures. I love it! I'm not sure if I would use it though. A lot of people think it's trashy. Personally, I don't at all.

Jasmine/Jasmina is very pretty, as long as it's not spelled something awful like Jazmyn.

I love the Jasmine flower and love the name Jasmine - especially as a middle name. I think it goes with many first names and is a beautiful, happy choice.

Maybe this name is overused to some of you, but I guess that where I live it's pretty rare. Or it's just I'm not meeting enough people. :) The only Jasmine I know is my cousin... This name is very pretty. I like it a lot.

A name does not define who a person is and the fact that people call someone trashy or low class based off a name goes to show how unintelligent people really are.

I have never actually met anyone called Jasmine in my entire life and I am nearly 24 years old, so I am surprised people are saying it's very common. (I am from England btw).

I have to say I love this name. It is really beautiful and very feminine. I would never think someone with this name sounded trashy as that is ridiculous to think like that! If anything I would think they had such a beautiful/pretty name.
― Anonymous User  6/7/2013
It's a lovely name, and I've yet to meet an adult Jasmine who wasn't a lovely person, but in the past few years it seems that every third child born in my area is named this. Maybe wait for the popularity to die down a bit before giving it to your own kids?

My name is Jasmine and in my school I only knew of 2 other girls named Jasmine. All of my friends call me Jazz or Jazzy. I am not ghetto nor rude to anyone. I really like my name but is saddens me to see the comments of these people. My dad wanted to name me something musically so Jazz was a good option for him. Otherwise I would have been named either Stephanie, Savannah, Cami or Cali. A lot of people love my name at my school. At least I'm the only Jasmine in my grade(thank goodness). I really do not like the other various spelling of Jasmine though. And I also love the smell of Jasmine. Sometimes it's embarrassing to watch Aladin though... Talk about sensuality.
jazzycritique  1/2/2014
I don't like this name at all. I don't like any of the spellings of it either (Jazmin, Yasmin, Jasmine, etc..) I don't like how it sounds in English and really dislike it in Spanish HAS-MEEN. I'd never use it.
― Anonymous User  1/17/2014
Why would this name be trashy? It's the name of a beautiful flower with a wonderful aroma, and it is also the name of a Disney Princess... neither of those namesakes are trashy. Also, what is everyone's problem with so called "trendy" names? Names (and songs, books, etc) are trendy for a reason.

I love the name Jasmine! My cousin has this name, and she even looks a lot like Princess Jasmine from "Aladdin". I've never met any mean or whorish Jasmine's and even if I had, it wouldn't sway my opinion with the name.
MonkeyRia  5/14/2014
My name is Jasmine, and I really do not think the name is overused (in the uk anyway). I am one of the only ones from my school with that name, and people often comment on it being unusual. Also, don't judge the name based on the experiences you have had with people of that name. I like to have the nicknames 'Jaz' or 'Jazzie'.

I LOVE the flower! :D.
― Anonymous User  9/7/2014
I have to agree with the majority of people and say that Jasmine (and the original Arabic Yasmin) are both really beautiful names. However, the moment a z is substituted for the s or a y for the i, (Jasmyn, Jazmine, or Jazmyn) this name becomes trashy. Also, Jasmin is, as this very site shows, the masculine version of the name. Keep the e to keep it feminine.
kvpp88  10/19/2014
My daughter's name is Jasmine. I could be a little biased, but I think it's a beautiful, strong and feminine name. She is petite with long light brown hair with blonde tips, the biggest blue eyes you'll ever see. She looks like a little Califonia girl. She's a very smart girl (on the honor roll at a prestigious high school) a gymnast and competitive cheerleader. So far this name has served her well and I'm sure it will in the future.

Jasmine is "yasamen" in Old Persian, means "Gift from God", and Jessamine is an old spelling version of Jasmine.

It's quite a nice name, but I know 6 Jasmines and all but one are stuck-up, obnoxious, a show-off, etc. Very overused as well.
IsolationHedge  4/26/2015
My name is Jazmyn but as you can see it is spelt differently from how other people would spell it. I love the name Jazmyn whatever way it is spelt so if any one wants to say they don't like this name they should keep their opinions to themselves.

Jasmine Thompson is an English, half-Chinese singer and songwriter from Central London.
― Anonymous User  6/28/2015
Jasmine is a nice-sounding name in my opinion. To me it is more 'legit' than many other word names, but it loses some of its appeal because of its being overused.

I have noticed a good deal of kre8yv spellings of this name, some crazier than others (I think the winner in my personal experience would be Jazzmyn), and as with most names that are kre8yvly spelled, the misspelling ruins the name.

I disagree with some users about the name Jasmine being trashy. I think Jazzmyn is trashy, no doubt, but Jasmine itself is rather nice.

I also agree with some users that Jazz would make for a cool diminutive.

My name is Jasmin and it has no e. My parents thought it was a pretty and calm name.
My name is Jasmine and the name is uncommon and very beautiful. Most of the girls with this name are usually dealing with personal issues and don't want anyone to know. I myself am this way. Some of us are only considered "trashy" because we don't want anyone to know who we really are, or that we're hurting inside.
skater236  2/17/2016
Personally I've never liked this name. I'm not sure why; it's a perfectly good name, not too immature or tryndee sounding. I just don't like the way it sounds. It's ugly to me.

Something about this name being used on anyone who's non-Asian or Arabic doesn't sit well with me. It's pretty but uncreative, unoriginal, and a tad stripper-like.
batmanhaskryptonite  12/15/2017
My name is Jasmine. I am not trashy or stuck up. I have only heard of one other Jasmine where I live. (I live in the USA) I am unsure what makes you think that the name is overused. My parents did not name me after the princess, but after the flower and tea. Anyone who insults a name by calling it "Trashy" or "ghetto" is inconsiderate to all the people named it. By saying mean things about a name based on personal bias you are showing that you are the petty one who is unable to refrain from stereotyping.
