A name often given to a white child by his parents. With a name like Eric, his parents are more concerned about how well he does in school rather than how much action he gets. Eric is rarely referred to anyone but a nerd, but there are few exceptions where he is so intelligent that he also excells in sports. Eric is usually the cool kid in the group.
Eric is good at everything. He's so smart and he's going to play varsity basketball someday. I wish i were Eric.
