Subject: Last name - Could it be Ornamental Jewish?

My last name is German in origin. The original spelling was probably Oelwein. When looking at the German translation, it seems to be "Oil wine". What could be the origination behind this? I'm especially curious about the possibility of it being a Jewish Ornamental name.
