Hy and wau?

The greeting ‘Hi!’ and the expression ‘Wow!’ are quite often used in informal German. However, according to my observation, many people instead use the variants ‘Hy’ (that word does not exist) and ‘Wau’ (which may either be the sound a German dog makes, or the German name for a plant, see here).
