Characteristics of Jazmyn
Etymology & Historical Origin - Jazmyn
Jasmine is the English version of an Arabic name (Yasmīn) borrowed from the Old Persian “yasamin” referring to a perfume they produced from the flowering plant of the olive genus native to the warm temperate regions of the Old World (i.e., Afro-Eurasia). Jasmine is a hugely popular name right now among English speakers and ranked quite high on the charts of Australia, England/Wales, Canada, Scotland and the United States (as well as Sweden); although Yasmīn has long been a favorite female name in the Arab and Persian worlds. In the United States, Jasmine follows a revival 100-year old trend that favors naming girls after flowering plants and trees. Consider Lily, Iris, Rose and Violet, for example. However, the name’s increasing popularity in the last couple of decades probably owes much to the character of Princess Jasmine from the Disney animated feature film Aladdin (1992). The jasmine flower symbolizes elegance and grace, and is known for its intoxicating fragrance. Because this pretty flower name has garnered so much attention in the United States since the 1980s, American parents have since dressed it up a bit with modified spellings. Jazmyn is one of the best examples of this stylized tendency.
Popularity of the Name Jazmyn
Jazmyn came up onto the American Top 1000 list of baby girl names for the first time in 1993. No surprise, that same year Jasmine was ranked #23 in the nation. Suffice it to say that Jazmyn has been riding the coattails of Jasmine since her introduction on the U.S. naming list. That notwithstanding, Jazmyn is the least preferred spelling of the name Jasmine (along with Yazmin). Now that Jazmyn is already showing signs of backwards momentum we hardly doubt she’ll see much more successful years to come. Swapping the “s” for a “z” has become a fashionable spelling option for this name (Jazmine and Jazmin do well on the charts), but the “-myn” suffix may be just a little too cutesy for most American parents.
