Before you head to that cookout, brush up on what foods to avoid—and the important moves you need to make to stay safe.


With the official release of the most popular baby names of 2012, we've rounded up the top boy names and predict whether or not they'll make the list for 2013.

1 of 6

1. Jacob

A Hebrew name meaning "he who supplants," Jacob may have spiked in popularity the past few years because of a certain teen werewolf, but it originated in the Bible.

Previous ranking: The name Jacob has held the top spot since 1999.

Our 2013 prediction: With Twilight mania just beginning to die down, we don't see Jacob losing its spot atop the boys name list anytime soon.

2 of 6

2. Mason

An occupational name that means "stone worker," Mason has become a popular choice for both boys and girls in recent years.

Previous ranking: The name Mason is relatively new to the list of top 20 boys names, with a number two ranking in 2011 and a number 12 ranking in 2010. Mason did not break into the top 20 in 2009.

Our 2013 prediction: As the name becomes more popular with celebs like Kourtney Kardashian and non-celebs alike, expect to see Mason among the top boy names of 2013.

3 of 6

3. Ethan

A popular name from the bible to American pop culture, Ethan is a Hebrew name that means "strong" or "firm."

Previous ranking: Ethan has had a consistent showing in the top ten boys names the past three years, ranking number seven in 2011 and number two ranking in both 2009 and 2010.

Our 2013 prediction: From Ethan Hawke to Ethan Allen, the name has had staying power since the early nineties, according to the U.S. Social Security Administration. We wouldn't be surprised to see it remain in the top ten for the next few years.

4 of 6

4. Noah

A Hebrew name that means "peaceful" and "comforter," the name Noah has been around since the Old Testament of the Bible.

Previous ranking: The name Noah has fluctuated among the top ten boys names. It ranked fifth in 2011, seventh in 2010 and ninth in 2009.

Our 2013 prediction: In addition to the United States, the name is also popular in Australia, Canada and Sweden. Its worldwide status, and legion of fans of the film The Notebook, will likely keep it in the top 20 for 2013.

5 of 6

5. William

From authors to conquerors and kings, the name William has been popular in Europe for nearly one thousand years. Derived from German words meaning "will" and "helmet," variants of the name include Liam, Wilson, Wiley and Wilmott.

Previous ranking: A relatively stable name among the list in recent years, William ranked third in 2011 and fifth in 2009 and 2010.

Our 2013 prediction: With more traditional baby names gaining popularity and media surrounding the birth of Prince William's first born this summer, expect to see William among the top five boys names in 2013.

All Business

The reality star did a little mix and match for this chic suit: She wore a Mugler dress as a jacket and paired it with matching white trousers. The cut of the dress-turned-jacket helped her hide her baby bump back when Kardashian was about 4 months pregnant.

But now, she's embracing the changes to her pregnancy body—including her lips! Check out the photo she shared this week on on her Instagram feed:

"My pregnancy lips are outta control #IGuessNotABadProblemToHave"

Less Is More

A little black dress can be a pregnant girl's best friend. The color is slimming and the style is perfect for almost any occasion.

Kardashian rocked this flattering black keyhole dress from Saint Laurent that featured sheer arms paired with Dior heels to the MTV Movie Awards in April. She made it memorable without being fussy by adding a simple gold necklace.

Reports are swirling that her baby shower is set for June 2:

"Invitations arrived at their destinations in music boxes that, when opened, played the tune, "Hey Mama," the tribute track that Kanye wrote for his own mother, as a wind-up ballerina twirled."

Fashion Risk

Her first time to the annual Costume Institute Gala (known as the Met Ball), Kardashian caused quite a buzz at the event earlier this month in this Givenchy gown. Her boyfriend, Kanye West, also wore Givenchy. The designer of the dress, Riccardo Tisci, defended the flower-print dress, saying:

"To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers. I think she looked amazing. She was the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career."

Despite all of the jokes and negative comments, the dress won't soon be forgotten.

Causing A Buzz

This nude-colored, full-skirted Lanvin dress turned many heads this week as Kardashian made the TV interview rounds in support of her role in the new Tyler Perry movie. She told one interviewer:

"I still want to have my style ... so I love the high-waisted skirts because they go right above the belly, but they fit and still kind of show your shape."

Hello, Baby Bump!

The 32-year-old mom-to-be wore this L'wren Scott turquoise pencil skirt and Derek Lam black top while out for lunch in Beverly Hills recently. In an interview, Kardashian said:

" I think it's really beautiful to show the shape of your belly when you're pregnant. So I opt for things like that that are a little bit tighter instead of looser. So I've been having fun experimenting with a bunch of stuff and getting things made — all my skirts have like this panel in the back. It's been fun to figure it out."

Wows In White

The pregnant star showed off her growing baby bump at an Academy Awards party in February in a figure-hugging Donna Karan dress and finished off her sexy look with Lorraine Schwartz diamonds. On her personal blog, Kardashian fired back at her fashion critics:

"I feel my best when I am in heels and chic clothes! Happy mommy, happy baby! xo"

Loving The Leather

Kardashian worked the red carpet earlier this month in leather pants. During an on-air TV interview, she said sister Kourtney warning her about the criticism women get during pregnancy.

"I wore this black leather skirt the other day. People are like, 'Why are you wearing black? Are you ashamed? Are you trying to hide it?' It was tight! I was trying to show the bump. They said, 'You're trying to suffocate the baby!' Everything I do, it seems to be crazy."

Shining Bright

Never one to shy away from color, Kardashian wore this hot pink Juan Carlos Obando dress and neon yellow Louboutin stilettos while sightseeing on a trip to Brazil with boyfriend (and father of her baby) Kanye West. She and West are an international couple and are discussing the same for their baby:

"We're thinking of having the baby in Paris, maybe. We're still deciding."
