Can it be "Dw i Owen"?

No. As explained in the section Notes, when giving your name or occupation, or anyone else's, the pattern to use is the emphatic one, with the name or occupation coming first in the sentence.

There is no problem being understood if you do happen to use the wrong pattern here - anybody would understand that your name was Owen - but it would just sound odd.
