Default Is it a banana?

So, I was at Lowes, a couple of days ago to pick up some dirt, and I was browsing the plants. I found this pot in with the hostas, no marker, no price tag, nothing. I asked several employees, and not one of them had the foggiest idea of what it was, other than "It was with the hostas, it must be a hosta of some kind, probably."

... It's not any kind of hosta I've ever laid eyes on.

I know what I THINK it is, but I know there other plants that kinda look like this, as well, so I'm not completely certain.

I'm not asking for help identifying a type of banana here, folks. I am a complete newbie, and I am asking for help confirming that it's a banana period that I've got, or if it's probably something else.

Can anyone confirm?

Please don't be scared to disappoint me. The cashier only charged me a dollar, because it couldn't be ID'd by anyone and it looked ragged and had no price. Whatever it is, if it just lives period and survives the transplant I did into a larger pot once I got home, I'll be happy.
