This name is cool. It has an appealing twangy sound to it.

The name Batya also means בת י'ה daughter of God in Hebrew. The first one to bear the name was the princess of Egypt (daughter of the biblical Pharaoh who enslaved the Hebrew people), who saved Moses from the Nile. According to the Jewish Talmud Batya went out of Egypt with the Hebrew nation and became one of them, daughter of God.

Bashe wouldn't be exactly the Hebrew pronunciation of the name but the Yiddish one.
