    One Piece What sounds good for the D. name?

    Rather than trying to figure out the mistery of the D. clan, what about thinking of what would sound good? It's not like when the series end, the Wikipedia page for the main character will change to Monkey DESTRUCTION Luffy or something like that. So it should sound appealing to some extend.

    Given the emphasis on the D. letter, we should expect the name is written with alphabetic writing system and is not a Japanese word. All of the D. have English words in their names, and maybe that's a hint that it's an English word. And we already got too many animal names, so I wouldn't be counting on that.

    I was expecting "Gol D." to form a derivation of the word Gold, but I don't think there is one that would sound good.

    Re: What sounds good for the D. name?

    The transliteration of the Japanese word of destruction does not begin by a D, as far as I know. I think the word horobosu is the one that was used for destruction; unfortunately, it's a verb form, I believe. I don't ever remember that the noun form of destruction was used with a D at the beginning. Regardless, I find destruction to be a villainous word for Luffy. Doesn't sound like a good choice to me

    Ace's mother Portgas D. Rouge had a French name. Rouge means Red in English. Not all Ds have English words in their names.

    I think I have a nice one.

    Monkey Deicide Luffy.

    A few chapters ago, it was revealed to us by Rocinante that D. was god's natural enemy. Deicide is a person who kills a god. Hence, Monkey Deicide Luffy.

    Don comes from "Dominus" (« master » in latin) - thats a great suggestion - simple and meaningful

    then it could be a nation which used to be pacific and got advanced knowledge. Master in knowledge ?

    you mean the kingdom which created Poneglyph in Void Century?


    as of "D" in D clans, I thought it was Delano from F. D. Roosevelt (Franklin Delano Roosevelt)

    That could be cool, but I was hoping in the context of people who are crazy and are somehow finding ways to change the world one way or another. Like, Blackbeard, Roger, Luffy, Garp, Dragon, etc.

    Any name that starts with a D that means god's enemy or slayer is I'm going for since Cora's revealing the D's being known as God's enemy

    Yes D could be also the name of "the kingdom which created Poneglyph in Void Century"

    I think the D could be a Latin name though, or in any ancient language, if not dead.

    From Latin dominus, "lord", "head of household", akin to Spanish don and Italian dom; from domus, "house", + diminutive suffix -inus. Compare dominie.

    Noun
    "don"
    A university professor, particularly one at Oxford or Cambridge. - a lecturer (= college teacher), especially at Oxford or Cambridge University in England

    I think this is the closest meaning - a kingdom advanced in knowledge, we can assume than other kingdoms got rid off them by force. One piece could be the one Poneglyph which guides to the core of knowledge in the one piece world.

    One Piece is not a Poneglyph or the Void Century story because Rayleigh accepted not to tell the Strawhats what One Piece is, but nonchalantly told them that the Roger Pirates unveiled the Void Century.

    I just want to remind I made a suggestion. Let me be more specific, I think that the last Poneglyph as a lost "knowledge" could be the key to the One Piece (and the Void Century).
    It may be the last Poneglyph or Poneglyph as a whole.
    I suggest people with the "D" name possessed this advanced knowledge. My other assumption is that Robin may be a "D" as well.

    Also, Rayleigh refusing to tell what One Piece and how they unveil the Void Century don't prove that One Piece is not related to Poneglyp. We can't affirm that, can we ?

    Re: What sounds good for the D. name?

    Technically not, but it would be weird if that was the case.

    Usopp: Does One Piece exist?
    Luffy: Don't answer that!!!
    Rayleigh: Fine. By the way, we figured out the Void Century.

    Maybe I am being a little too simplistic? It would be a lot more complicated...
