It is a mosaic aloe, possibly a hybrid, but I could not tell you which one. There is a similar plant called "Wunderkind" but I'm not sure it's a match. That puts you in the general neighborhood, anyway. Smiling

Almost all these are hybrids, with uncertain or intentionally not revealed parentage - so the best you can get with these is aloe x 'cultivar name'
Unfortunately if you did not get the plant with a name it is really hard to get a positive id, because many of these hybrids are very similar and when you add different growing conditions things can look alike a lot, or not a lot like the same named plant grown somewhere else.

I have 'blizzard' too, not sure that would be it. There is also 'Doran (or Dorian) Black', and a whole bunch of others with a lot of white in their leaves.
