What does "omenis" mean?

"Omenis" [ɔ:mɛnɪs] is an archaic Lithuanian word for "mind" in somewhat narrower, more physical meaning, for example:

Lithuanian: "Turėk omeny, ką jis sakė, tai turėtų padėti"
English key: "
Have in [your] omenis, what he said, it should help"
English: "It should be helpful, if you would b
e prepared to remember and act according to what he said"

It feels like any concept is expected to work simply because its location in omenis. If it doesn't work - you missed (the point) and the concept was left outside your omenis. The most exact, shortest English translation, that I can think of - "remembrance capacity".

To be exhaustive about Lithuanian language, there is one more, casual and truly rare use of "omenis" for "consciousness". One may think of unconscious man as of a man, who (temporarily) lost his "remembrance capacity".

Lithuanians frequently use "omenis" in their everyday speech, but there is a catch - they use it almost exclusively in locative case "omenyje", "omeny" [ɔ:mɛnĩ:] (as it was in the example above).

Is just a personal homepage?

Lets say - it is under construction. The construction itself is not to be disclosed yet.

Is it OK to write Juzikenas instead of Juzikėnas ?

Yes, it is OK for non-Lihuanian texts. Anyway, such minor diacritics won't help much for foreigners to pronounce my name [lɪʊtɑ:uɹas jʊzɪkenas].
