WIKI MAGIC REQUIRED BELOW, MUCH LIKE THE REST OF THIS TVTROPES PAGE
- In real life Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus was nicknamed "Caligula'' after the caliga (soldier's boots) Gauis wore as a child. So young Gaius was the cutesy nickname Caligula (Little Boots) after the miniature soldier's boots he wore. Which is now associated with a bloody, decadent and insane tyrant. Considering Hiccup's many deeds as the Hero of Berk, many game-changing inventions and stratagems and accomplishments, Hiccup will probably have different connotation. Hiccup will probably be a shorthand name for a really smart person with the fun fact that it once meant air bubble that got trapped in diaphragm.
- People have been guessing that any mention of wild dragons out of Berk will be where Valka is. So far, none have been correct, with Iceland being the current favourite, mainly because it is the only place we know of that has wild dragons at the moment.
