Today, Jasmine is one of the most popular names in the Western world and has numerous spellings. In the United States, it entered popular use in 1973 and, from 1986 until 2008, was among the 100 most popular names for American girls.[3] In Turkey, Brazil, Israel, Hungary, Belgium, and Argentina, the name Jasmine, or one of its variants, remains popular.[4][5][6]
