Hi Jack, it's hard to tell with some plants - they all look the same until they bloom. Here is a potential suspect:
Clivia, which has these strappy leaves, but then it will come out with a cluster of really brightly colored orange blooms periodically. Once you see them, never forgotten.
If this is what it is, then keeping it in bright light, with a dormant period in the winter will induce blooming in the summer. Clivia is classed as a bulb, which means that it won't like being kept too wet.
It's other name is Kafir Lily, so that will give you an idea of its origins, in the African veldt.
Happy Houseplant Growing!
