I think it is. My dd will be 4 in May and she is just now pronouncing L, but still sometimes pronounces it as a w. Her name is Aliyah (uh lee uh) and until recently, as in the last 3 weeks, she has always pronounced it as uh wee uh.
There are several more, but I'm tired and can't think of them right now.
My 3.5yr old pronounces everything correctly now, but until a couple of months ago, the one that she couldn't manage (and my dd1 was closer to 4 before she could pronounce it properly) was 'V' in the middle of a word. Eg over was 'ober' and Stevie (my sister) was 'stebie'
My sister is a primary teacher and she says there are some sounds that kids can mispronounce until they are about 6 or 7 iirc, without there being any need to worry x
It's totally normal. Some speech sounds aren't even expected until about 8.
Violet who is 4 years 4 months can't say the l sound either. She also has trouble with the r in certain positions of words... I THINK she can say it at the start of a word, but not in the middle or end of a word. Not sure th is always pronounced correctly... I'm sure there are others, but she's completely age appropriate. My trouble is when she chooses to not speak clearly...
My four year old mostly pronounces things correctly now, apart from looked is look-Id, chopped is chop-Id etc my two year old can't say 'r' in the middle of words and says them as a 'y'. She also can't say the 'fl' sound.
Thomas has only just started pronouncing and blending the p sound at 5.5 years. There are charts online outlining what sounds are expected at what age but there's leeway either side. Thomas has a phonological and speech sound disorder so he's taken a little longer
