Yasmin is pronounced Yas-meen. The name is Arabic, not from any particular part or culture. It is also a fairly common name in Pakistan where Islam is practiced.

Yasmin is indeed pronounced Yas-meen. While Yasmin is Persian for Jasmine it is more common in Pakistan, Afghanistan and neighbouring Arabian countries. In Iran Jasmin is much more common.

The meaning of the name is flower in Arabic or Persian. It is used in nearly all Muslim countries and has become a popular name for English people as well. Indian and Pakistani's also use the name. The variations of the spellings are Yasmin, Yasmine, Yazmin, Yazmine, Yasmeen and Yazmeen.

In Danish "min" means "my" so as a Dane I think it sounds very sweet to say min Yasmin. I love this name as I love flowers too.

In London it is not unique. I know more Yasmin's, Jasmine's and the like than I do Jennifer's. Nice name though, not trendy or made up, just popular.

It is pronounced ya- ("ya wanna?") -s -min (like the "min" in "minor").

In the flower language, Yasmin means "you are enchanting".

The Turkish version of this name is Yasemin (pronounced yass-eh-meen). There is a little girl, whose parents are from Turkey, in my preschool class named this. I think its a very pretty version of Jasmine.

I could never name my daughter Yasmin simply because it immediately makes me think of the contraceptive by the same name.
ICEyun  2/25/2009
This name is ugly. It reminds me of yaks or birth control. Ew.

I understand an Arabic person using this name, but just to be kre8tiv is ridiculous. Stick with Jasmine, please.

This name has been in use across the middle-east for centuries and essentially means 'beautiful fragrant flower' - a reference to the Jasmine flower.
Nininska  5/18/2011
Why would you spell it with a y?!?!?! It should be Jasmine! Yasmin is a yucky-yuck name and it reminds me of someone who is very boring and has a dumb voice. But sometimes it reminds me of a chav who has massive hoop earrings...

Beautiful Arabic name, but it's very common. I have at least 5 female relatives with this name. I also know a lot of other people with it.

I want to like this name, but I know a Yasmin who is a stuck-up snob. Thus, it makes me think of a snooty popular girl. It's also the name of one of those icky Bratz dolls.
Buneary  11/9/2012
Yasmin is much prettier than Jasmine.

As a matter of principal, the origin of a name should not be based on how a person chooses to spell the name in English based on a foreign language.

Immigrants choose a spelling based on how they think that a name will be pronounced. The name itself is a cultural and traditional choice from their native country, culture and language.

I believe that Yasmine, Yasmin and Yasmin are all originally arabic, but have been adapted and adopted as Persian or Hebrew. It means Jasmine.

I think the spelling Yasmeen is better.

Sounds like the name of a belly dancer. Or a teen mother.
