Contacts must be in the "iCloud" section of the contact list, not the "On my <fill-in-the-blank>" section.
Settings>icloud - be sure you are signed in to the one account you want to use and be sure Contacts is turned on.

Thank you pvonk.
In the side bar of my address book there is a) All Contacts, b) All on my Mac and, c) All iCloud.
When I click on any of them, the listings to the right of the side bar jerk for a second and settle - but not necessarily in the same place in the listings.
And below that, I have a bunch of Smart Groups.
What I am not clear from reading you is what to do next.

just go to settings on each device and go to icloud, make sure your signed in and check the stuff u want to sync, apps, music, mail ect, and evertime one device is near wi fi it automatically syncs

Thank you; I looked. Contacts is checked in iCloud on all 3 devices.
And yet, with all 3 devices on my desk, it is still NOT syn'cing that particular name on my Macbook Pro to the other two devices.
Same must be true to names I added to the iMac. What next?
Thank you for your time and advice.
