Should not we expect something like Iranian *raz-a- corresponding to Indic rah-a- ? 
And what about the development Harahvaiti > Ranha? Is this formally not impossible? Or there are linguistic rules which forbid this?

Perhaps connected with Old Indic raMh-, rah-a- 'run, hasten' (raMhas- 'speed' etc.)?

The late Iranian name for Volga is Rah, or Ranha. Can it be a residue of Harahvaiti? Is this possible from the linguistic point of view?
