Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

This portrait is gonna take its place along all the other Chiefs and their sons. That is the only picture of my father and me. It was a great day. And so is this! [src]
  Stoick to Hiccup  

Stoick's Father was a former chief of the Hooligan Tribe, the father-in-law of Valka, and the grandfather of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III.


Chieftain of the Hooligans

Stoick's father was a chieftain of the Hairy Hooligan Tribe. As such, his portrait is seen hanging on the wall of the Great Hall in "Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Man", pictured along with his son as a young teenager. The chief and son portrait is a custom for the Tribe going back many generations.

He is also mentioned in "Cast Out, Part 2" by Alvin the Treacherous as being the chief when he and Stoick were young, and because Stoick was the chief's son, he was by default in charge of the soldiers in charge of fighting dragons off.

Raising a Son

Stoick's father taught his son some hard lessons to become a Viking, lessons that do not work for Stoick's son, Hiccup. In How to Train Your Dragon, Stoick tells Gobber about the time his father told him to hit his head on a rock, and he did so without question. Stoick's father ordered his son to do so to teach him "what a Viking could do, Gobber. He could-- He could crush mountains, level forests, tame seas! "

Stoick wonders what his father would say in Gift of the Night Fury, seeing his Tribe celebrate Snoggletog with dragons. Stoick's father spent his life fighting against dragons to save his village.

Stoick explained to Hiccup that Berk had been the home of the latter’s grandparents and their grandparents before them during a flashback in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

Physical Appearance

Stoick's father's appearance was similar to his son, Stoick. Like Stoick, he had red hair and muscular and buffy arms. He had the same shoulder guards on his shoulders that his son wore, as well as the same tunic. He wore the traditional Viking helmet, and his beard was also similar to his son's. He also wore a prosthetic left leg, a trait that is eventually shared with his grandson, Hiccup.
