Comments and insights on the name Jasmine: | Edit

Spanish pronunciation is yahz-MEEN
My name is Jasmine. I was born in 2000 I have dark blonde hair and Hazel eyes which are mostly always green. My mom loved the name and she loves the flower. I love my name and wouldn't change it. Jasmine isn't that popular of a name but it is beautiful and unique. My favorite Disney princess is Jasmine from Aladdin. I think the name Jasmine suites me well. It expresses in how much I love nature.

Personal experiences with the name Jasmine: | Edit

My name is Jasmine and I think it's a really beautiful name. It's also the name of a flower and my favourite disney movie Aladdin's Princess Jasmine. The name suites me as I have dark olive skin, brown hair and dark brown eyes. Although, Jasmine is quite a common name as their was three Jasmine's in my science class at one point, all Jasmines together on the register aswell. So it was like: "Jasmine?" "Yes sir." "Jasmine?" "Yes sir." "Jasmine?" "Yes sir." That got a few snickers, but other than that, no-one has made fun of my name or critisized it. Overall, it's a lovely name and I recommend the name for future children.

My name is Jasmine and although I think it's pretty, I don't think it suits me as a person. I get called Mina, Jay, and also Juniper, which I thought nobody else got called, so I was really surprised when I saw it here! I'd like to spell it 'Jasmin' instead, as that would mark it as my own. I have brown hair, pale skin, and green eyes, so I don't think it suits my physical description either. I think the name 'Leah' or 'Luna' would suit me better. However, I do think it's a really pretty name, I just don't think it goes with my personality! I also had a science teacher who called me 'Yasmin' for the whole time she taught me (ages seven through eleven)which got really annoying! Apart from that, I've never had any trouble with my name.
