Is it just me or does the name Jasmine sound a bit grim/wicked?

Not only feminine but it has always sounded very dark and mysterious to me. Seems like a lot of people associate it with the princess but for me, it doesnt exactly bring a princess to mind but more so a vixen.

It doesnt sound wicked/grim to me,  I think of the flowers

The flowers are white, delicate and aromatic, so in general I don't get a vixen vibe from the whole name. However, since the obvious nicknames are Jaz and Jazzy, and they have a different feel, I can maybe see where you're coming from.

Jazzy just makes me think of Fosse-like jazz hands, so... really not dark and menacing :)

I don't find it menacing either, but I can maaaaybe get from jazzy to some smokey old-time bar, and that's as vixeny as I can get from Jasmine. :-)
