Surely noon can't be either or before itself, and is therefore neither afternoon nor forenoon? Unless you're looking at British Silly Time, under which true noon is the clock-time afternoon.

12pm and 12am make no sense. That's why we have the terms noon and midnight.

... or, even more something-ly, midday and midnight.
