My name is Jasmine Alexis and I LOVE my name- my initials spell JAM lol and anyone that has that name is a f**king cool ass chick or dude…..Jasmainian Devil, Snazzy Jazzy, Spazzy Jazzy are all nicknames I came up with. Lately been calling myself Jazmanifinesse! Lol Jasmine. Is. A tight ass name! Stop hating, I’m Bitchinese get on ur knees open wide bullshit aside and take a bite of reality.
I would like to share my experience having the name Jasmine :) Although it's fairly common, I have only met a few others with this name, but all of them around my age (born in the 90s). When people learn my name is Jasmine they'll usually either say "like the Princess" or "like the rice". I love having a nature inspired name. I've gotten a lot of compliments on my name and I've been surprised to hear several times that someone thinks it's exotic. If you're considering the name for a child: According to my mom the hardest decision was choosing a middle name because so many sound good with it. If you like nicknames, there are options from either half of the name. I have heard Jazz, Jazzy, Jas, Jiji, Min, and Minnie. Just know that Jazzy is basically unavoidable as a nickname. It can be annoying when people just assume that they can call me that when I've introduced myself as Jasmine. I would never professionally use Jazzy in the way someone named John might go by Jack or Samantha might go by Sam. So it's always a good idea to ask first about someone's name preferences, or just refer to them as how they introduced themselves :)
Jasmine in Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney princesses! This name is lovely like other flower names.
Jasmine is a pretty name! Very common for my generation, however. Still, very pretty!
I like it better with the J spelling. Such an exotic and lovely sounding name.
Unique and definitely pretty like most floral names.
I used this name for my second daughter. I never really loved the name Jasmine, because of girls I've met with this name, who were all the popular, trendy, Love Island watching type. But recently I've been obsessed with the name, it's really beautiful and calming. My daughter has dark skin and big dark eyes that makes the name fit her so well.
R.I.P Jasmine Sanchez.
Jasmine is a beautiful name! It's a name that I've always loved. It has that classy flair with a modern feel. It sounds like the name of a smart caring girl. You may have had horrible associations with girls named Jasmine, but I have never. It isn't that common, but it's well-known. The flower is pretty and the tea is good. Aladdin isn't a bad association either.
Great name! My parents almost named me Jasmine and even to this day I think it is a really wonderful name to have. I haven’t met any Jasmines in my life though, but if you are one I want you to know that you have a beautiful name.
Different types of the Jasmine are the national flowers of Tunisia, Indonesia, the Philippines, China, and possibly more places.Source:
I like the sound and the meaning and I much prefer this name spelling over the other ways.
Growing up my bff's name was Jasmine. Pre-2000. She was the opposite of delicate, but boy was she beautiful, still is. She was my ride-or-die. Would do ANYTHING for me, even my dirty work. I called her Jazzybell and Jazzers. My favorite flower now is a Jasmine flower. Tea too. She may have influenced me there.
Strippers wouldn’t use a name like this. They use names like Candy, Diamond, Glitter and what-not. Jasmine is a beautiful name and hope to see it stay for years to come. ❤️.
Beautiful name. I love the scent of the Jasmine flower.
Jasmine is a beautiful name that has an unpretentious beauty. It isn’t super girly and delicate sounding like Arabella or Julietta, but it sounds strong and pretty at the same time. It is a wonderful nature name that is much less common than Lily, Hazel, or Violet. I love pretty girl names with more masculine boy names so the nickname Jazz or Jazzy is very appealing to me as well!
This is cute I like that it has an e on the end unlike Jasmin, it just looks more complete to me. I love the nicknames Jazzy and you might be able to get away with Minnie which I think is so cute.
Such a beautiful, refined, sweet girl's name! I love the name and the banner!
Omgggg all I think about when it comes to the name Jasmine is the Disney princess Jasmine and that was the princess I hated the most- like ughhhh sooo boring.
This name is really pretty to me nice and soft. I love the scent of Jasmine flower. When I think of a girl named Jasmine, I think of a pretty and smart girl for some reason.
I think Jasmine is a pretty name that seems to give me the impression of a serene beauty amidst a summer night’s dream.
It's pretty but so played out.
I love this name it's really pretty!
Jasmine is a really pretty name. Better than the overused Rose, and Lily.
I like it quite a lot. It’s pretty and probably the best flower name. I also like Violet, I kind of like Rose but that has become way over-used.
I love this name and would love to name my first child this but sadly, my big sister's name is Yasmine... so I thought the name Jasmine will probably ruin the family a bit. When I think of Jasmine it reminds me of a nice girl with light brown hair.
Comes to me as a gothic name. Probably because of the children’s book “Midnight" by Jaqueline Wilson where there is a beautiful girl called Jasmine who lives in a goth house.
Look people. Have your personal opinions but Jasmin isn’t that a bad name, lmao. It isn’t a stripper name, and it isn’t trashy. Jesus you people are mean.
This is my favorite out of the flower names. Jasmine sounds so powerful all while being extremely feminine.
My favorite name when I was 12 :)
Also Spanish.Spanish Pronunciation: khas-MEEN.
Pretty! Jasmine, Jasmin, Yasmine, and Yasmin are all very nice. I'm surprised people say this name is common, I have never met a Jasmine before. :)
Jasmine Masters, a contestant on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 7 and RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 4, best known for her viral, memetic videos.
I love Jasmine! It's sweet and simple but has a nice flair to it. I don't know why people are saying that "All the Jasmine's I've met are horrible" like it matters. Being named Jasmine doesn't affect your personality. When I hear Jasmine, I immediately think of the flower, pretty and precious. I love it, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion :)
Hi, my name is Jasmine and I love it the way it is :>
One of the only great names with ‘class’ and ‘pizzaz.’.
I love the name Jasmine. It’s so pretty because it’s a flower name. If I ever have a daughter I would call her Jasmine and her middle name would be Emma.
I love the name. I named my daughter Jasmine Bella, a beautiful flower :) bonus that she is a Disney princess too!
My daughter is white, British, and we got a lot of criticism for her name, but I love it. I wanted a name that you could shorten, I abbreviate it to Jaz or Jazzy!
Strong, clever, independent and will go far in life is how I would define my Jasmine. Meanings of names are what you make of it, not what's posted on the web :)
Jasmine Cephas-Jones is a singer and actor, daughter of actor Ron Cephas Jones and singer Kim Lesley, who is best known for her roles as Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds in the musical Hamilton.
A beautiful name. I actually used to be friends with a girl named this. I prefer Yasmine, however.
I am Jasmine born in 1976 in Ontario, Canada. I met my first other Jasmine when I started high school in 1990. Then Disney's Aladdin came out and boom... name exploded. I often get called Yasmin or asked if my background is Persian or Arabic. In reality, I'm not and my mom found it in a baby book.
Pronounced "chass-MEEN" in Swedish.
In 2018, 17 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Jasmine who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 245th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
Jasmine is my name and everybody tells me it's a stripper name (and it totally isn't). To make matters funnier, my mom named me Jasmine Star. Everybody points out that it sounds like a pornstar's name. That's fine with me because strippers make Big Bank.
Jasmine is a beautiful name. It's really sad that it has such a bad reputation. My theory is that a lot of people named their daughters Jasmine after Princess Jasmine from Disney's Aladdin (1992), and perhaps many of them were young parents who were lower on the socioeconomic ladder. Ergo the terrible classism you see on this website, where people are constantly calling names "trashy," "ghetto," "stripper," etc. It's rude and uncalled for, and it only makes the commenters look like bad people, not the people who have those names. You can say you dislike a name without disparaging the person who has it.
Jasmine is a lovely name. It is NOT a stripper name and does not only belong on Arabic girls. It can be used on anyone.
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.
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.
Its Italian variant is Gelsomina (jehl-soh-MEE-nah) which come from 'gelsomino' the name of the flower. [noted -ed]
Jasmine Marie Villegas, better known as Jasmine V, is an American pop and R&B singer. After many years of pursuing a career in music, she was signed to Sony Music at the age of 16.
This is a trendy, trashy, bratty name and I can't picture an older women called Jasmine. This is definitely one of my most loathed names.
I hate this name, it's boring and every Jasmine I've met was annoying.
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.
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.
My name is Jasmin and it has no e. My parents thought it was a pretty and calm name.
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.
Jasmine Thompson is an English, half-Chinese singer and songwriter from Central London.
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.
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.
Jasmine is "yasamen" in Old Persian, means "Gift from God", and Jessamine is an old spelling version of Jasmine.
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.
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.
I LOVE the flower! :D.
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 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.
Jasmine van den Bogaerde is the real name of British singer Birdy - one of my favorite singers. (She is also the grandniece of Dirk Bogarde.)
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 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.
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.
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?
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.
Pronounced shas-MEEN in Swedish.
I think it is a very beautiful name, and not trashy at all. I think it is sad that anyone could think that a name is trashy.
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.
Jasmine is the name of a Steel-type Gym Leader in the Pokemon games.
I used to like this name but it is too common now...
This is my friend's name. I call her "Jazzy". :)
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.
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.
Jasmine was also the name of the princess loved by the main character's uncle in the movie Secondhand Lions. The main character Walter names his pet lion Jasmine after her.
Jasmine/Jasmina is very pretty, as long as it's not spelled something awful like Jazmyn.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
JASMINA is the Croatian form. A very popular girls name, especially in the 1970's and 80's.
Jasmine Isabelle Harman (b. 1975) is a British TV presenter.
Jasmine Guinness is an Irish model and heiress to the Guinness family fortune. She is also a great-granddaughter of British fascist Diana Mitford.
I like this name because it's pretty and it always makes me think of pink sequins.
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.
Jasmine Elaine Parks is the main character of Jennifer Rardin's urban fantasy vampire novels: Once Bitten, Twice Shy; Another One Bites the Dust; Biting The Bullet; Bitten to Death and One More Bite. Very exciting and amusing novels for vampire-lovers!
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.
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.
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!
The Turkish version is Yasemin pronounced like it looks; yass-eh-meen. I think it is one of the prettier versions of Jasmine.
I think this is a beautiful name. I love the fragrance of a Jasmine flower.
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.
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.
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.
Cute sweet, isn't it?
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.
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.
Very pretty name.
I think a set of twins named Jasmine (f) and Jackson (m) would be fun: Jazz and Jax!
Slovene form is Jasmina. Lovely name!
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.
Version Jasmina is Czech and Serbian.
Name Day: 24th February.
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.
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.
I really like the name Jasmine, it's so pretty!
Jazz is a nice nickname for a nice name.
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.
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.
Though apparently this name is extremely popular, I've never met someone named Jasmine before. I think it's a beautiful name, and I like it's definition.
It's beautiful, but too many snobby girls ruined the name for me.
I'm fond of Jasmine, nickname Minnie. :)
In Hebrew it is pronounced Yas-min.
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 is a pretty name but much too overused and common now. Every other little girl is a Jasmine these days.
My cousin's name is Jazmine and I love her very much so I like this name although I would never use it.
I think it's over used, and really a bad TRASHY name.
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.
I really love the way this sounds. It's a shame so many people find it "trashy".
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!
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.
I love the name Jasmine. Not too overly popular and the nicknames for it are really cute.
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.
It is also Arabic name and means the same thing.
Not a personal pick, but definitely very pretty!
It's overused. (Hint - never say the name Jasmine in a store)
Some good nicknames for Jasmine are Jazzy, Jaz(z) and Min.
Jasmine is the name of a book by Bharati Mukherjee.
The jasmine is the state flower of South Carolina.
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.
The actress who plays Whitley Gilbert on "A Different World" is named Jasmine Guy.
Jasmine is pronounced Hasmin in Spanish. This is also a related name.
A famous bearer of the name is Princess Jasmine from Disney's animated movie Aladdin.
