Noon Name Meaning
Irish: variant spelling of Noone. English, Scottish, and Dutch: from Middle English none, Middle Dutch noene ‘noon’, the time of brightest sunshine, hence perhaps nickname for a bright and cheerful person or for someone born at that time of day. The word is derived from Latin nona (hora) ‘ninth (hour)’, i.e. about three o’clock. The change in meaning of the vocabulary word from mid-afternoon to midday, probably occurred as a result of monastic meal times being brought forward.
