Ana Ortiz is thinking blue for baby number two!
The former Ugly Betty star and husband Noah Lebenzon are expecting their second child, the couple tell Latina.
"We know it's a boy! [We] are trying to come up with some names that we can agree on,” Ortiz, 40, shares.
High on the list of contenders? Names that work in both English and Spanish, much like the one given to daughter Paloma Louise, 23 months.
"It has to be Spanish, but something non-speakers can pronounce without mauling," Ortiz explains. "Suggestions? I'm open."

"[Paloma]'s like a little Ugly Betty mascot," Ortiz, 38, told PEOPLE at the Fitness Mind, Body, Spirit Games in New York City last week. "Everybody is constantly popping into my room to pick her up or talk to her. She has this whole other family at [the show], and it's great."

Since becoming pregnant with her first child – due the end of July – Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz has gained something unexpected: psychic powers.
"Before I found out I was having a girl I dreamt that I was having a girl," Ortiz, 38, told PEOPLE at the Point Honors gala in New York City Monday. "I even dreamt what her name was, so I guess that name should be her real name."
While Ortiz remained mum on the baby's name – except for joking, "It's going to be Watermelon" – she did say, "We have a short list, but when we see her, hopefully, one of those names will fit. I'm hoping at least for a Latina flavor to it. But we'll see."

Pregnancy hasn't been a bumpy road for Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz. In fact, the actress, who's due with a girl at the end of July, says she feels "phenomenal."
"I've had a great experience so far," the radiant actress told PEOPLE Saturday at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City, where she wore a form-fitting white J. Mendel dress. But, she added, "Talk to me in another month."
So, what's she craving? "French toast and pancakes," says Ortiz, who's married to guitarist Noah Lebenzon. "Other than that, I want citrus and lots of fruits."

It's baby talk all the time now on the Ugly Betty set.
Mark Indelicato tells PEOPLE that everyone couldn't wait for a first look at costar Rebecca Romjin's 6-week-old twins with husband Jerry O'Connell.
"We got pictures of Dolly and Charlie," Indelicato says at the Cinema Society screening of He's Just Not That Into You. "They are beautiful. Charlie is literally bigger than Dolly. Charlie's face is round and shmushy."
Of course, Jerry and Rebecca's twins should prepare for some competition for attention since costar Ana Ortiz is expecting her own bundle of joy.
