Actually, I read the character profiles in wikipedia and came to read the Earl's.The Earl was referred to a character from a novel named The Pictures of Dorian Gray.Namely, that character from the novel is Dorian Gray, which is the protagonist,I think. It was said that Dorian Gray therefore becomes D.Gray-man. I have thought that D.Gray-man is "The Gray man" too.The author already said that it relates to Allen and it's quite unique.If I'll explain it figuratively, gray might be describing Allen's personality in which that he is either good or bad.He is both.I don't know if he'll really become a full-fledged Noah like Tyki or Road.But if he'll be, this will be his bad side and as an exorcist will be his good side. But of course, everything still remains a mystery ^_^

D.Gray-man = Dorian Gray

I also read it in Wikipedia. It said that it is referring to the Earl.

But I went to search further. Dorian Gray is a character in the novel "The picture of Dorian Gray"
"Dorian Gray, wishing to remain young and handsome for eternity, sells his soul in order for a portrait to age instead of him. However, without his soul, he cannot enjoy the life the trade has given him."
Then, Wikipedia said at the 1st paragraph of The Earl Of Millennium..
"The story's main antagonist. Also known as "the Earl of Millennium", he tricks people with dead relatives and friends into creating Akumas. He is a sorcerer from long ago, and he plans to lead the world to its death. Some time in the past he formed an alliance with the Noah family, who call him "Duke Millennium". 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 Grey man" and thus "D.Gray-Man", as adapted in the film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) whose tale even claims he still may be alive somewhere."

Eh, OMG!! The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen?? It showed on TV many times but I never watched!!
I don't know if it's true but... What does it have to do with this Anime "D.Gray-Man"????

Yup, I agree with your thoughts. Before I read Wikipedia, I had the same thoughts that you had about " The Gray Man" and that Allen is in two sides of the evil(black)+good(white)=(Gray) and also because his new innocence his black on the right and black on the left. The thing is... I'm confused!

The creator said he just made the name up out of thin air, though it does sort of apply to Allen. If you go to page 2 of the D.Gray-Man group photos, the answer is in the scan of "Komui's Library Lounge."

when allens akuma eye evolves a skull apears for a few seconds and the skull has a tattoo of a D on its eye so maybe that has something to do with it. more importantly why is it called BLEACH?????????? sum people have said its becoz the shinigami cleanse the hollows but thats ridiculous it might as well b called soap if thats the case.
