Etymology & Historical Origin - Yazmin

Yazmin is a “jazzy” update to Yasmīn, an Arabic female name derived from the Old Persian “yasamin”. Yasamin referred to a perfume the Persian people produced from a specific 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 circulation since the turn of the 20th century when naming girls after flowering plants and trees was in vogue. Consider Iris, Hazel, Lily, Rose and Violet, for example. The name’s increasing popularity in more recent years, however, owes much to the lovely Princess Jasmine, a character in Walt Disney’s animated feature film, Aladdin (1992). The jasmine flower symbolizes elegance and grace, and is known for its intoxicating fragrance.

Popularity of the Name Yazmin

The spelling of Yazmin is considered a modern Americanized rendition of Jasmine. Swapping the “s” for a “z” is supposed to add some flavor to an otherwise quasi-trendy name. In fact, there are eight different ways to spell this name in the United States today (anything over three starts to push toward unbearable confusion – eight is almost insufferable). Since Jasmine is a common flower name, spelled this way in the English dictionary, most people in English-speaking nations opt for this version of the name. As a name common among Persian and Arabic nations, most people are also aware of the Yasmin(e) transcription. We get how the “z” enlivens the name a bit in a flashy sort of way, but it will likely require spelling corrections in perpetuity. This particular spelling of the name is one of the least preferred and given to less than 5% of the Jasmines being born on an annual basis. We should also mention that Yasmin (or “Yaz”) is the best-selling oral contraceptive (birth control pill) in the United States. Something to seriously consider before choosing this name for your daughter.
