Dwayne Johnson and his long time girlfriend Lauren Hashian welcomed a baby girl into their family on December 16th of this year. The happy couple have revealed the adorable name they have chosen for their daughter. Jasmine Johnson is the newest addition to The Rock’s family and is sister to Dwayne’s 14 year old daughter Simone, from a previous marriage.
The name JASMINE reached it’s peak in popularity around the 1990’s following the release of Disney’s Aladdin which featured Princess Jasmine as a main character. Jasmine is a Persian name that comes from the jasmine flower. Jasmine is a fragrant tropical plant that has an intoxicating aroma and is often used to make perfume and teas.
Michael Jordan also has a daughter named Jasmine as does Martin Lawrence.
Although the 2000’s saw the name Jasmine weaning in popularity, other flower-inspired names continued the trend. Meg Ryan named her daughter Daisy while Scarlett Johansson chose Rose for her baby girl. And who could forget the floral tributes chef Jamie Oliver gave to his brood of girls- Poppy, Petal and Daisy.
