I believe when I worked in the flower shop we called it umbrella palm, might look under both names to id it.

You have a Ponytail Palm. They will get Huge in time. They seem to enjoy plenty of light and an occasional watering. I had a small one that I had purchased when my daughter (now 33) was small. It got so big that I couldn't roll or drag it up the hill to my greenhouse anymore so I passed it on to a neighbor who puts it in his garage during the winter....it's quite the eye catcher sitting outside his garage in the driveway during the warmer months of the year as it's huge :)

You have a Pony tail palm also known as an Elephant foot. They are native of Mexico, but they really are not a PALM. I live in Florida and they grow to be huge here with our warm tropical weather.
