While Jasmine is all about soft edges and femininity, Jazmin comes across as sharp (probably because of the “z”) and streamlined (the dropped “e”). Jasmine, a fragrant flowering plant, is a pretty name with an old-fashioned vibe; Jazmin is no-nonsense and modern. When Jasmine became trendy, American parents came up with this different spelling to be both part of the trend and outside of it. It’s a good choice if you feel Jasmine needs to be jazzed up.
