I think that is the spelling. Not having any more DC but saw this written down and wondered how you say it.

I read it as Sadhuhb, I am sure it's not pronounced like that though. What's its origin ?

Think it's Sive.

Rhyming with five, not give. It's Irish, if it's the name i think it is.

Like sieve the kitchen tool or Steve with out the t ?

Oh oh oh I see.

Syve- but I don't think that spelling is quite right.

Rhymes with five, it's Irish.

AwfulBeryl Sun 18-Jan-15 08:39:34

The spelling is correct. As others say. It rhymes with five

I would spell in Sadbh or Sabh. I don't think there is an official way to spell it it just depends what part of the country you are from. It is my favourite Irish name

Its Sive. I actually know one and the GP of this child had the gall to question the (much more common and very easy to spell) nickname that we've given DS1 hmm

Wailywailywaily Sun 18-Jan-15 08:55:29

I know one, spelled Sabh though.

It's an old irish name - features in irish mythology:Sadhbh

I'm irish and know quite a few, it's pronounced Sive to rhyme with five. I usually see it spelt as Saidbh!
