Help! "Rat" Surname?
I'm writing a story featuring a male wererat and I need a human surname for him that means "rat" and/or alludes to rat-like behavior. Something subtle, not obvious. Any ideas?

"Rat" translated into some languages that make it less obvious:Arouraios (Greek)
Rotte (Norwegian)
Podgana (Slovenian)
Sobolan (Romanian)
Zurka (Latvian)
Ziurkes (Lithuanian)
Szczur (Polish) - I like this one because it looks like "scurry," which rats doOther ideas:Mouchard - French for "informer, sneak"
Schleicher - German for "hypocrite, one who sneaks" - also a last name, I knew a guy in high school with it

I saw this question on Yahoo! Answers.
I have nothing else to say.

How about the German surname Roden? Not very subtle but certainly rodential.
