Origins of the name "Jasmine"
"Jasmine" is of old French and Persion origin. Clearly it does relate to the beautiful looking and scented fragrant flowers of the jasmine climber, which derives from Yasmin.
There are several variants of the Name Jasmine including Jasmin, Yazmin, Jazmine and Jazmyn.
Although the name has been around for many years, apparently the name "Jasmine" only really became popular because of the film Aladdin with the character Princess Jasmine in 1990.
It is amazing how much a film can influence what people call their children. However the Princess Jasmine was gifted with the attributes of being free spirited, kind and a confident person so wonderful personality traits for any little girl or grown woman to have.
Well I am a little older than the film, but the name was also recorded as being used from the mid 1960's or even 1930's. For more information please see the links below.!

I wish we have the ability to waft scent to you from the computer monitor! If we did for me it would be jasmine.
For me the scent is best appreciated straight from the garden. There is nothing like the delicate appreciation of the flower when you get up close and inhale its lovely aroma.
The scent of the jasmine flower ifs often used in various bath soaps, body lotions and perfumes.

Jasmine In My Garden
Well I couldn't not grow jasmine now could I !!!
The jasmine plant like many other plant varieties, has travelled quite a lot in its life. We understand that it is originally from Persia and introduced into China via India. Since then it has expanded into many countries including UK and America and there are many different varieties.
I have grown both indoor and outdoor jasmine but have had much more success; you could say runaway success, with outdoor jasmine!
My husband and I are always in a gentle battle of wills with our 2 huge jasmine plants which do so well we have to keep a close eye on them !
Really they are easy to look after. I remember when I first planted the tiny plant we bought from the garden centre. It was so small and I carefully tended it. it was not long before it became comfortable in its place by the fence and started to spread along the fence. When it flowered it was very impressive, a gorgeous covering of creamy white beautifully scented flowers.

If Not Jasmine Then Which Name? Huge Choice Of Baby Names
Baby Girl or baby Boy here is a huge choice of names....
Lots of choices here for naming your baby!
Some people seem to know what they will call their baby a long time before he or she is even born.
Some parents already know that a family name or a treasured name for a passed family member is the given choice for a first or middle name.
Sometimes the children in the family always have a certain name included in their total name.
There are parents who like to call their children with names beginning with the same letter of the alphabet.
For other people it is a more difficult decision that requires a lot of research and consideration.

Jasmine is also a tea. It generally has green or black tea as a base and has added jasmine blossoms to give it its lovely scent. For me it was an acquired taste but now I like the flavour which is fairly sweet and the fragrance is just lovely.
Now we can buy it easily. However it was not widespread until the Qing dynasty around 1644 to 1912 when it began to be exported from China to the West.
It is a refreshing alternative to ordinary tea and well worth giving a try.
