In case anyone wantsto know, here's the actual etymology:
Late 16th century: alteration, perhaps by association with medieval Latin batta, blacta, of Middle English bakke, of Scandinavian origin.

The Spanish word for bat, murciélago, comes from two latin words that together make "flying rat." So basically, you're right.
