    Usage of 'from behind'

    I think I heard somebody call out my name from behind.

    Can someone please tell me if the above sentence sounds natural?

    Re: Usage of 'from behind'

    It sounds incomplete. From behind what?

    ...from behind me.
    ...from behind the car.
    ...from behind the curtain.
    ...from behind the door.

    Re: Usage of 'from behind'

    It sounds OK-ish to me; I'd just assume it meant behind the speaker.
