Olga into Volga 

speculation without improvements. Did you say that Belarussians live by the Volga?

There is no v- insertion before o in territory of Volynian dialects.

This gives reconstrukctios of Volyn (lith. Voluine

Lithuanian Voluinė is modern derivative from Волыня, ы>ui, because ы can not be pronounced in Lithuanian perfectly.

Oluine ( and according to lithuanian name Alanta change into Alunta

Baltic stems with al- cannot be reflected in Slavic as ol- because of historical epenthesis. Volyn' can be connected only with Germanic and Slavic. 

Stupid argumentaion-Volga is Bielorussian women's name. The Belorussian peoeple lived in Volyn too - this Volyn region is very close to Belorussia. There iswell known change"kuilys" into "kyl" - the same way Voluine changed into Volyn. The Alani stems could be reflected in Lithuanioan and Slavic in different ways.
