I found this on another website, since, there are currently theories, posting them should be ok:
- Bleaching the hollows to purify them, as a shinigami
- Ichigo bleaching his hair as assumed by the others
(another not much related one is related to the band Nirvana, and Kubo being a fan...)

Most likely it is a bit of all the reasons. Many of the early chapters are based on song titles re-enforceing the Nirvana bit .

But Ichigo's hair is naturally orange, isn't it ? I'd rather go with your first idea.

Ichigo is a bleached version of kaien, maybe there's some connection there

I think the Nirvana reference is a much stronger theory than people seem to accept. Bleach is littered with references and homages to music, particularly American rock music. There is even one Nirvana reference we can be fairly certain of- Don Kan'onji's catchphrase, "Smells Like Bad Spirits!" For the uninitiated, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is one of the most famous Nirvana songs, though it didn't come from the album "Bleach"; it came from the followup to Bleach, "Nevermind".

Great song.

I think Geta Boshi nailed it, kubo had a black haired main character and probably a bad title. Then He bleached it all.

sCRYed is another title that I still have no clue to why the series is named that way and have asked many times and have still yet to get a resonable response...
Err.. what about the SEED-mode(god-mode) the characters go into?
While it's questionable as to whether Fukuda came up with the name SEED first and named the god-mode after the shows title or visa-versa, in the end title gundam SEED DOES have something to do with the show itself.... y'know... even if he never didn't bother to explain what the hell seed-mode is...

As for sCRYed... looking it up on wiki, while not mentioned in the anime the word is mentioned and has some significance in the manga... its a term that relates to the evolution of alters or something like that (that should end the mystery for you =p)

overall, titles of shows/comics/movies/what-ever, having little or nothing to do with the series in question is quite rare; if they occur at all. Titles generally have some kind of connection to the show...

LOL I don't even remember when I wrote that...Obviousy the context doesn't make sense to me right now...So I'll pull a mulligan..

As for Bleach I'm cool with thinking it probably has multiple meanings...One being the Nirvana connection...another being Ichigo's hair color as it relates to his other self, another being in that fact he (as a shinigami) bleaches lost souls (hollows)...The next (and probably canon) explanation will probably be revealed near the end of the series I suspect at the creators whim...

This is why its is called Bleach.

Seriously though...i bet Kubo was just trying to find some cool, exotic(well to japanese anyway, english words are probably exotic, its like how hagen daz has a german name even though its not german ice cream) catchy, name for his manga. He probably examined his manga from all angles, the setting, the characters, so on and so forth, and he just saw Ichigo's hair and hit on it.

In the japanese manga industry a manga with a english title is probably going to attract more attention than everything else with a japanese name.
