When using a monosyllabic preposition with the name of the town באר שבע, do you 1. pronounce the first letter as "v" and 2. give the preposition a חיריק? For example,

בבאר שבע biv'er sheva
לבאר שבע liv'er sheva
כבאר שבע kiv'er sheva

I know that if it's preceded by the conjunction ו ("and"), it will be pronounced uv'er sheva, of course.

אני מודה לכם מאוד

    Thanks! I guess the same goes for the city נתניה‎ because it, too, begins with a שווה נע. Am I correct?
