Both Olbias, the one in Sardinia and the one in Sarmatia, were Greek colonies, and the name is Greek, of course. It's the feminine form of Gk. olbios 'happy, blessed'.
As for the rest -- indeed, I'll smile sardonically ;-}

For sure you will smile now, but I make the conection which
has some points which could be very interesting. For instance
we have some paralels like:
-sardoi but we have too thracians examples like:
Sardonis , in the latin form Sardonius
-serdi or sardi, the wellknow tribe which builded the city of
Serdica, actual Sofia
-saldensii as tribe, villages as Serdica, Sardeis ( in the
neighbourship of Callatis),

Just these cognaets will be just coincindeces but we have to
see, there is more as this.
If we take a look at the old ports of Sardinia, we will find
these names for instances:
Bithia, Sulcis, Tharros, Bosa,  Olbia
Let see:
Bithia = ancient port in Sardinia
bithus, bitos, bitus, Bithinia, all getic words

Sulcis= ancient port in Sardinia
suci as getic tribe, sucidava as toponym, the pass Succi in
teh valey of Hebrus

Tharros= ancient port in Sadrinia
thracian names like:Tharsas, Turesis and something far, the
tribe of Trausi

Bosa , mm. here i do not find nothing just the whole derivtes
from bessi, but nothing more

For Olbia, we have in getic theritory to an Olbia , but we
know the city from the getic theritory was biulded by

It is interesting to find such cognates. Or maybe there is
something more as just coincindeces.
Olbia= ancient port in Sardinia
