Fritillaria

I love this species, I have a few in the garden that manage to survive in some corners of the garden without any special care.

Over here we name them after the following bird: Northern Lapwing / Peewit, in Dutch this bird is called Kievit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Lapwing

We call the flower either Kievitsbloem or Kievitseibloem

In which "bloem" is dutch for flower and "ei" dutch for an egg

So in English it would be Peewits flower or Peewitsegg flower. :D
