I don't really remember them, but my parents often remind me of the imaginary friends I had as a very young child. "Toadie and Clyde" were the names of these companions who, apparently, sat at dinner with us, took a bath with me and lived under the kitchen sink.
My sister, Debra--for years!--had two imaginary friends, "Sack and Sicko." They went everywhere with Debra. She told stories of their great adventures and the exciting things they had done. I remember going out to the swing set once and Debra would not let me sit on the swings because Sack and Sicko were on them. (I think the names came from an attempt to pronounce "San Francisco")
Allison had two imaginary friends for years as well. "Peely and Penelope." I think it was actually Peely Herman Boss and his lovely wife. Allison was always talking to Peely and telling me stories about him. Peely worked at the bicycle shop behind Carl's Jr on Muirlands but Penelope was not quite as lucky at keeping jobs. She worked at the donut store for a while and then at Baskin Robbins. For some reason, I think she did a stint at Freedom Village too.
My niece, Thea has an imaginary friend named Dana. Dana is a squirrel who lives on their front porch and speaks only Spanish. They put nuts out for her...
