Really hard to narrow it down to a specific cultivar name.
I think the mottled look of the color is virus related, but interesting just the same.

Thanks Mike, should I destroy the bulb? If it is a virus, I don't want it to spread but it is kind of a lovely virus. I cut the blooms already and made it into a bouquet.

I can't say with 100% certainty that it's a virus. That may just be the coloration it's supposed to be.
I've had a few turn out like that in the past and I just let them bloom and kept them anyway. Shrug!
