The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language states “By convention, 12 AM denotes midnight and 12 PM denotes noon. Because of the potential for confusion, it is advisable to use 12 noon and 12 midnight.”
‘Noon’ means ‘midday’ or 12 o’clock during the day. ‘Midnight’ refers to 12 o’clock (or 0:00) during the night. When using a 12-hour clock, 12 pm typically refers to noon and 12 am means midnight.
After 12pm you say “Good Afternoon.” It makes no difference if you are seeing the person for the first time or not. “Good Evening” is said at and after dusk.
