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.

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.Quote:

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.
I like Don. "Do things with a don!" Luffy and most Ds certainly are!
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.
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.
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 ?
