As you may already know, the V sound has no equivalent letter in Arabic. the letter ف which stands for the F sound, is routinely used as a substitute. If you want to be emphatic about the V in your name, add two more dots over that letter, for a total of 3 dots in a delta-like arrangement.

Unlike the previous answer, mine does not insert a long vowel after the initial B sound, for fear of making the name sound like Beaverly.

the letter "V" does not exist in Arabic. It is commonly exchanged with the consonant "F"
If you want to have the name written with the arabic alphabet and not the latin one, email me and I will do it for you.
