SURLY is traced to the Indo-European “root” sen - 1 (old), since the conventional wisdom is that SIRLINESS is having the haughtiness of a “sir” or “sire” – see “SIR.” If this etymology fits your image of a SURLY teenager, and if you think SURLY is a cognate of “senior” then see SENILE.

סרר $oReR  is the perverted, rebellious son in Deuteronomy21:18.  

סור $OOR  is about turning aside from the שר   Shin-Resh straignt path
