Is this a white rain lily?
(Do they even come in white?)

Or something similar?

What about these specimens? They look very similar, except there's also 6 tiny white petals inside with a green button center?

Cute little flower, and I have no idea what it is. But for future reference, the green button center is the ovary, and the "petals" are the filaments (are they still called filaments when they are so wide?).
