As usual, I've been reading through the archives again; I've noticed that 
one of the more
popular theories for Fifth Head of Cerberus is that the unnamed family is 
surnamed "Wolfe".
I can see the attraction of this, in an novel concerned with identity, and 
with the only obvious
clear clue to the surname the statement "the kids called our house "la 
maison du chien"" (
to quote from memory) in the first novella. But this has a problem with 
solving as Wolfe.
Cerberus is a dog; the three-headed beast is a dog. "Wolfe"=wolfe !=dog != 
dog in the front of the mansion.
The archives don't tell me how this difficulty was resolved, if it was, or 
even if it ever came up.
