My dd4 has a speech delay, she’s trying her hardest to tell me about her friend at school but she keeps saying “Sharon” and when I repeat the name she is getting angry because it’s not right! I can’t think what it could be!

Help me lol it’s driving both of us insane!

Seren? Cornish name?

Sharing maybe? The friend sharing (or not!) with her?

Agree with the posters above. If it’s a name it sounds like Seren to me. If it’s not, Sounds like sharing to me!

Seren? Sarah? Does she tend to get her S sounds right or could it start with a different sound?

She’s normally good with her s sounds.

She said it’s S A but might not be lol Iv told her my listening ears aren’t working right now so I’ll turn them on in the morning!

I’m leaning towards sharing

Any chance is salmon?

First thing I heard was ‘seven’. What’s the context?

Choice4567 Tue 13-Apr-21 19:22:30

Is there more context in the sentence - is it definitely a friends name?

Thedarksideofthemoon30 Tue 13-Apr-21 19:22:30

It’s deffo her name, we were talking about her friends she wants to invite to her party in July.

Shannon, Savannah?

I presume you've asked her to show you? draw a picture? Etc.

Email her teacher and ask for suggestions.

You don’t have a class WhatsApp or similar do you, where you could ask if anyone knows children with names beginning with S?

Oh sorry, I got a bit carried away as I listened to her before I was swayed by the replies.

Probably not salmon! 🤣
