Characteristics of Yasmine
Etymology & Historical Origin - Yasmine
Yasmine is a variant transcription of the Arabic Yasmīn (يسمين), ultimately derived from the Old Persian “yasamen” meaning “Jasmine” (as in the flower). Jasmine essentially referred to a perfume produced from the flowering plant of the olive genus native to the warm temperate regions of the Old World (i.e., Afro-Eurasia). Jasmine – especially in the form of Yasmīn – has long been a popular female name in the Arab and Persian worlds. In the United States, the English equivalent Jasmine has been in use since the turn of the 20th century when naming girls after flowering plants and trees became a fashionable trend (like Lily, Rose and Violet). However, Jasmine’s increasing popularity in the last couple of decades owes much to the Disney character Princess Jasmine from the movie “Aladdin” (1992). The jasmine flower symbolizes elegance and grace, and is known for its intoxicating fragrance. Yasmine (with an “e”) is a Top 10 female name in Brussels, Belgium where there resides a high concentration of Turks and Moroccans.
Popularity of the Name Yasmine
Yasmine first appeared on the U.S. female naming charts in 1989 and then received a good little boost up the charts in 1992 following the release of “Aladdin”. This particular spelling of the name reached as high as position #384 on the charts in 1997, but has since been on the decline. In fact, 2009 marks the last year Yasmine can claim Top 1000 status in the country (201 baby girls were given this form of the name in 2012). Obviously, there’s quite a bit of spelling competition with the many other variations now in circulation.
