'Noon' is fine, although it doesn't seem to get used as much these days.

Can this mean "half a day" as well?

As an expression of an amount of time, hanner diwrnod is preferred for that:

  • Bydda i'n cael hanner diwrnod i ffwrdd o'r gwaith wythnos nesa - I'll be having a half-day off work next week
  • Pa mor hir yw'r daith? Tua hanner diwrnod ar gefn beic. - How long is the journey? About half a day by bike.
