History of National Yasmin Day
Yasmin is an Arabic variant of Jasmine. This is a Persian name derived from the Urdu language name Yasamin, meaning, of course, ‘jasmine.’ Yasmeen, Yasmina, and Jasmin are the most prevalent variants of Yasmin. Yasmins are usually found in European countries like Spain, Italy, and Portugal. These Mediterranean nations have historically been influenced by the Arabian world in a variety of ways, so it’s no surprise to see Arabic names popping up here and there.
Yasmin is a name most people would describe as having refined yet mysterious energy, as well as it being a youthful name. English actress Yasmin Finney, Brazilian model Yasmin Brunet, and Dutch model Yasmin Wijnaldum are just a few celebrities to bear that name.
Many fictional characters are also named Yasmin, like Yasmin Khan, one of The Doctor’s companions in “Dr. Who;” one of the Bratz dolls introduced in the Cool Bratz line; and, of course, the beautiful princess with whom Aladdin falls in love. Nearly 19,000 Americans are called Yasmin, which means that there are almost six Yasmins for every 100,000 people in the United States, making it the 1,485th most prevalent name.
