I think the title is based on the book The Picture of Dorian Gray,by Oscar Wilde,an allegory to the human struggle between evil and innocence,between growing old ot returning to infancy.Here is a critic of the book,you choose whether it's similar to D.Gray-man.

History: Dorian Gray is an orphaned boy who is the heir to a great fortune. Basil Hallward paints his portrait, and Dorian decleares that he would give his soul if he were always to be young and the painting instead would grow old. Dorian leaves his fiancée - the actress Sibyl Vane - because through a single bad performance he claims that she has ‘killed’ his love. She kills herself with poison and Dorian is unaffected. So begins the tale of the boy’s descent into low society in London while still giving dinners and musicals for high society. He is inspired by two things: the book Lord Henry sends him that seems to predict his own life in dissecting every virtue and every sin from the past; and secondly the picture of himself which grows steadily older and more vicious looking compared to his own mirror image which remains young. Fanatical about the portrait, he is driven to murder and deception. As others are drawn into this web of evil Dorian himself longs to return to innocence but his method is horrific and tragic.

Interesting. But no offense but I think this has no relation at all to D.Gray Man, being in title nor plot. Sorry if it sounds kinda mean.

This is something I found out on the web: Hoshino already said why. D. as in dolls, grey as in a mixture of black and white (evil and good), and man, meaning that humans are dolls of fate who are evil and good.Hoshino says she based the Earl of Millennium off a legendary alchemist/preacher (most likely the Count of St Germain or Nicolas Flamel, though in many ways he also reminiscent of Dorian Gray, possibly referenced in "Dorian Gray man" and thus "D.Gray-Man", character from the film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,character based on Wilde's book).

maybe the hoshino-san is kinda color blind to the point he made a mistake in allen's hair and also might be a rapper having D as"deh" rather than "the" ^^, and also using the word "man" at every last word a rapper say so "D gray-man" stands for "deh gray-man"
