Subject: My Name's origin

I've been very curious about the origins of my last name. THe original spelling of some ancestors in the U.S. were "Oelwein". I looked up the German translation and it seems to be "Oil wine". What is the possibility that this name could be Jewish? Can anybody help me know?
