    I've always heard it with the h silent as in Thomas. bat-shee-ba.

    But that could be influenced by the Hebrew Batsheva, possibly. I've only ever heard it in the context of Jewish stuff.

    I prefer Batya, Baila, Bilhah, or something like that. Or there's Sheba, but I'd prefer Shoshana.

    It's prononuced bath-SHEE-buh, the "sheba" at the end pronounced like the ancient Hebrew kingdom, Sheba.
    It has a very melodramatic sound and is deeply rooted in Biblical culture. Whether or not this is a good thing, is up to you. But it's like the name Delilah. You can't just pretend the association isn't there.
    Regardless, I think the name's a touch too dramatic for a younger kid or even a teenager.
