I am listening to the book right now (haven't read it in awhile) and have a question. When Danny goes to the doctor in town, he explains who Tony is. The doctor says to Jack and Wendy that he knew why Danny picked the name Tony and they agreed with him, but there is no further explanation. Am I missing something obvious?
Here is the passage from the book:
"...And of course you two must understand why Danny's invisible friend is named Tony instead of Mike or Hal or Dutch."
"Yes," Wendy said.
"Have you ever pointed it out to him?"
"No," Jack said. "Should we?"
"Why bother? Let him realize it in his own time, by his own logic. ..."
