What is the meaning of DuRaRaRa!!! I was told it was a reference to a word meaning non-sense but, I can't find that anywhere. So, what does it really mean?

According to TV Tropes, it doesn't mean anything and is just gibberish that the author (Ryohgo Narita) made up on the spot:

When asked by his editor for a title, the auhor [sic] had none in mind and spouted a few random syllables.

Narita explained this in a blog post in 2011 (credit to @merlyn for finding this):

...I was editing the finished draft of the book and my editor called and asked, “Isn’t it time to give an official title to the Public Relations department?”

So I just randomly gave a name, “Du…Durarara?”

[...]

Thus the title ‘Durarara!!’ was born—although to this day I’m still not quite sure what it’s supposed to mean.
