    Re: Need help from native English speakers

    Vytas: When I said I thought you should use "the normal anglicised version of the Lithuanian", I was unthinkingly working under the impression that in Lithuanian you use the Cyrillic alphabet that Russian uses. Be that as it may, if you're flogging your CDs in the West, they'll probably have trouble with the inverted circumflexes of the original Lithuanian, so the same advice stands: get rid of those, and, as long as you don't mind your name being mangled a million times along the way to becoming a household name (dream big!), I don't see what's wrong with your real name. Actually, since they'll mangle it anyway, there may be no point to getting rid of the inverted circumflexes. And, truth be told, a musician with a name like Vytas Diskevicius sounds kinda interesting, to my ears.

    No way! We use Latin alphabet with a few diacritic marks, because our language is not Slavic. (Lithuanian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    As for the rest, I'll consider your reasoned opinion, thanks!
