In regard to timekeeping ''AM'' is an abbreviation of "ante meridiem" and "PM" is short for "post meridiem"according to dictionary. Com.

Both of these terms are derived from latin phrase " mer diem" which means "midday".These terms are often confused with ante meridian and post meridian.

Standard timekeeping conventions in the U.S regard A.M as the period beginning at midnight according to Wikipedia. P.MM covers the period from noon to 11:59 while countries other than United State sometime follow local convention, this is the style adopted by international bodies and is consistent with the associated press style guide.The 12 hour clock can be traced back to Ancient Egypt.
