Everyone knew Nels Eric Oback as "Eric." Professionally, he usually signed his name "N. Eric Oback."

Eric was born on September 30, 1920 in Arvika, Sweden. The family name had been "Olson," which is as common as Smith or Jones in Scandinavia. Eric's father, Gus, legally changed their name to "Abach." In English, "Abach" translates phonetically to "Oback." The name was chosen as a remembrance of the family farm in Sweden, "Abachen," which roughly translates to "hill by the river 'Oh.'"
