    I'll offer churl.

    use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name

      Reminds me of a poem by Ogden Nash:

                        The Squirrel

      A squirrel to some is a squirrel,
      To others, a squirrel’s a squirl.
      Since freedom of speech is the birthright of each,
      I can only this fable unfurl:
      A virile young squirrel named Cyril,
      In an argument over a girl,
      Was lambasted from here to the Tyrol
      By a churl of a squirl named Earl.

    furl, purl, thurl, skirl
      These are good additions to the list.
