There are a lot of characters with the middle initial "D". Is this an indication of something, or do they really all just have middle initials of the letter D? If they are initials, do we know what they stand for?

Examples of names:

Monkey D. Luffy
Monkey D. Dragon
Portgas D. Ace
Monkey D. Garp
Gol D. Roger

It hasn't been revealed yet I think.

The initial was first pointed out in Oda's SBS questions and answers corner, he was also asked what the D in Luffy's name stood for. Oda just replied to read it as a D for now and that he would reveal the truth behind it in time.

You can read more in the Will of the D. wiki.
