My ears are hearing a v instead of a b sound at times. It sounds like beve. Can someone explain this?

This is normal ... this is how the letter b is pronounced in Spain. However, it is pronounced more like a b in latin america.

Last time I was in Guatemala, my wonderful little friends (teenage girls) kept saying something that sounded like Hennababy. I said, What? What? I was asking them if they were talking about drinking, etc. Then finally they wrote it out for me.............Genevieve. A friend of ours. Hennebebe was Genevieve.
