Originally, ''dinner'' referred to the first meal of a two-meal day, a heavy meal occurring about noon, which broke the night's fast in the new day. The word is from the Old French (ca 1300) ''disner'', meaning "breakfast", from the stem of Gallo-Romance ''desjunare'' ("to break one's fast"), from Latin ''dis-'' ("undo") + Late Latin ''ieiunare'' ("to fast"), from Latin ''ieiunus'' ("fasting, hungry").<ref>[http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=dinner etymology of "dinner" from Online Dictionary.

Eventually, the term shifted to referring to the heavy main meal of the day, even if it had been preceded by a breakfast meal.
