Jasmine Whats In A Name?

Updated on October 6, 2014

There's Something About Jasmine...

Jasmine is in my opinion a beautiful name. To be named after such a lovely flower is a priviledge indeed.

However it recently occured to me I know really little about the name Jasmine so I went on a small and fun mission to find out more. Here is the result so far...

I hope you enjoy, and if you are or you know someone who is a "Jasmine" tell them to drop by !!

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.!

It is an important and often difficult decision what to call your baby girl. There are so many different names, each with their own personality. Invaluable book when trying to choose your baby girls name.

 

The fragrance that is Jasmine...

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 Massage Oil

A beautiful special gift for yourself or a loved one.

It is well known that aromatherapy has many health benefits to people. Aromas can be relaxing, stimulating, uplifting, warming or cooling.

Jasmine in a massage oil can have a sensuous feeling. It is warming and uplifting and feminine.

If you enjoy a relaxing massage any oil with jasmine as an ingredient will make it a lovely experience.

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....

Baby Names

100,000 Plus Baby Names
100,000 Plus Baby 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 Tea

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.

Something About Ann

Theres Something About Ann
I also have the name "Ann" and I think it is a lovely name. To me it holds a certain strength and quietness. When I was a child it was great as Ann...

      @Elsie Thank you for visiting. Yes jasmine has a beautiful scent. I love the flowers especially. Well our rampant jasmine hedge doesn't look so rampant now after its just had a very good trim! It is so worth it though for the gorgeous scent that permeates the garden when in flower.

      Great Hub about Jasmine. I like the name very much, but don't know anyone with it. In fact jasmine was the first perfume I wore in my teens in the 1950's, still like that smell also. I do have those plants in my garden, a nice small shrub that's easy to control, also the one like your rampart hedge and it's just like yours if I don't attack it with the shears.

      I love the name and I also love the scent of the flower. I don't like Yazmin or Yasmin as a name but with a J then I like it a lot. I also like other flower names such as Rose and Lily.

      You do have a beautiful name, and yes outdoor Jasmine has a tendency to 'take over.' but it sure does smell nice, doesn't it?

      My daughter's name is Jazmín as its written in Spanish, I should be honest though and say that the name was already attractive to me before I even thought about having children but after watching Disney's Alladin, she stole my heart. This was one of the first Disney Princesses that showed character and resourcefulness, a true modern woman, I wanted that for my now 12 year old daughter, she loves her name and so do we. We usually call her Jazmincito, Min, Mincito and her baby sister calls her Min.It is trully a wonderful name ^ ^

      Heheh....well, Jasmine is more than a name for me....and yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if you could make a computer waft the scent of night blooming Jasmine through the screen? Walking the streets in the French Qarter of New Orleans gives you sudden moments of discovering that perfume on the breeze, almost as though a Goddess was just there. LOL. Happy Wednesday. :-)
