What is the name of this Begonia?

I rooted this from a cutting someone gave me this summer, but I don't know what kind it is. I thought Angel Wing, but couldn't find any quite like it when I searched images on Google.

Thanks for your help.

Angel wing is a common name for a lot of cane begonias.

Your begonia looks like 'Irene Nuss' - a large cane begonia with light pink blooms. Easy to grow and fairly trouble free.

Here are some pictures of Irene Nuss

Young leaves have silver markings:

Mature leaves are dark green.

This one is between 4 and 5 feet tall.
