I love [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]! It’s one of my favorite names. I would say that [name_f]Jessamyn[/name_f] doesn’t necessarily look ‘made up’, but definitely more modern and not as elegant as [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f], like [name_f]Madelyn[/name_f] v. [name_f]Madeline[/name_f]. And I wouldn’t say it’s too long at all. It fits right in with other great -ine middles, like [name_f]Adeline[/name_f], [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f], and [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]. I would go for it! [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f] is gorgeous.

I prefer [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f].

I prefer the look of [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f].

I prefer [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f], especially because I pronounce this name [name_u]Jess[/name_u]-uh-meen… [name_m]Don[/name_m]'t know if that’s the proper way, though.

[name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]. The y names are becoming so trendy and overdone.

Definitely [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f]! I have to agree with your worry that [name_f]Jessamyn[/name_f] looks like a trendy variant spelling.

Thanks @kole and @katinka. :slight_smile:

Yes, [name_f]Jessamine[/name_f] is much more elegant.
