Huywen surname?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Huywen, Knazook
I don't know much about my great-grandmother Helena (Elena/Olena?) Huywen(?) except that she was born in the Ukraine in 1897, somewhere in Galicia. (This is a guess based on my grandfather remembering her having an Austrian passport.) She arrived in Canada sometime around 1911 with 2 sisters and married my grandfather shortly afterward. I haven't had any luck with marriage registers because I'm a little unsure of the spelling for the names on both sides. There was a house fire that destroyed my great-grandparents documents before I was born and my grandfather's baptismal certificate doesn't fill out her name. I'm not even sure what their first names would have been as they were buried here as William and Helen. Grandpa remembers them sounding like "Wash-ail" and "Ylena." Does anyone recognize the last name, sounding like "huey-wen" as being a surname from Galicia? Any better spelling?
