      Jasmine is a popular name, I got my name from my Aunt whose favorite character from Aladdin was Jasmineā¤ It be an supposed to be her first born child's name, but she told my mother and my mother stole the name. That's why I'm my aunts favorite, jk. I dislike being called Jazzman but everybody calls me Jazzy!
