The woman who lived next door passed away, and the family has sold the house. They had a garage sale today, during which I noticed these daylilies. Her daughter told me that I could have some, but that legally I should probably ask the single gentleman who is moving in as well (what are the chances he'll want them?) before I dig some.
Neither she nor I know much about these cultivars, but since my neighbor was elderly and these clumps are huge and beautiful, they must have been there for at least a few years.
I only know that they're blooming their heads off right now, late June/early July.

I would very much appreciate it if someone could give me some possible IDs. Confused

It's going to be really hard to identify these with any certainty, I think. For the two top photos I'd refer you to 'Moonlit Masquerade'. Go look at the photos of that one in the NGA database. There are a lot of photos from different members. But also note that it has 169 registered descendants. A lot of those descendants also have a similar face. I you look at the list of 169 descendants, you will quickly see what I'm talking about just by scrolling down through the photos. I grow 'Wild Horses' which is one of those descendants and I don't think it would be the one in the photo, but it's still fairly close.

Good luck!

edited to reflect the changed order of the photos.

I had considered that the larger ones might be Moonlit Masquerade, but I actually bought one of those yesterday (labelled MoonliGHt Masquerade) and it just seemed too coincidental.

And you're right, that is a LOT of child plants!

The second one looks like 'El Desperado' which is popular and widely sold.

What about 'Black Eyed Stella' for the third and fourth pictures.

Is the bloom on the larger one yellow or more cream coloured in real life?

It's more of a cream or ivory shade, but I've seen differences in Moonlit Masquerade shades as well.

I think both of your suggestions are excellent, especially the Black Eyed Stella. :)

The top two look just like Custard Candy to me.

I agree with El Desperado and Black Eyed Stella.
