Who is Jasmine Dagless ?

A girl named Ikea after her mother saw a TV ad for the Swedish furniture giant changed her name to stop being bullied at school.

Jasmine Dagless, 19, from Norwich, was nicknamed ‘flat pack’ by bullies after she was given her name at birth.

The teenager, who only visited Ikea once, had to endure years of ridicule before legally changing her name when she was 12 in 2014.

She said: ‘They used to call me flat pack quite a bit in primary school. The bullying really shocked me because little kids don’t know about Ikea.

I legally changed my name when I was in high school. They only legally call me Jasmine. My family still calls me Ikea, or ‘Kea’ for short.’

Jasmine, an NHS administrative assistant, said her mother agreed to the name change, even though the family enjoyed Ikea benefits after her birth.

She said: ‘When I was younger, my mum got a letter from Ikea that basically said we could get furniture and toys for free.

“I have some toys and my mom has a sofa.”

She and she have stayed true to the store by furnishing her flat with a six-drawer dresser from the brand, plus she’s considering buying a built-in wardrobe from the chain.

Jasmine said that she is looking forward to visiting her local Ikea on a sentimental trip.

She added: “I went to Ikea when I was one or two years old, but as an adult I’ve never been, I really want to go.”
