Do you mean noon? That's the most common word that people use. Others say midday, or afternoon, but I believe afternoon is time after 12:00 pm.

If you mean the time when the sun is crossing your local meridian, you are looking for "noon".

  • "The time or point in the sun's path at which the sun is on the local meridian." TFD - the middle of the day, 12 o'clock in the daytime MW

or "high noon"

  • "The exact moment of noon."

    The other guy already suggested noon. I think there's a case to be made for mid-day, which is more inclusive. – Dan Bron Apr 19 '15 at 2:01
