The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

In music, a half note (American) or minim (British) is a note played for half the duration of a whole note (or semibreve) and twice the duration of a quarter note (or crotchet). It was given its Latin name (minim, meaning "least or smallest") because it was the shortest of the five note values used in early medieval music notation (Morehen and Rastall 2001). In time signatures with a bar length of 4 beats, such as 4/4 or 3/4 time, the half note is two beats long.

Half notes are notated with a hollow oval note head (like a whole note) and a straight note stem with no flags (like a quarter note; see Figure 1). The half rest (or minim rest) denotes a silence for the same duration. Half rests are drawn as filled-in rectangles sitting on top of the middle line of the musical staff. As with all notes with stems, half notes are drawn with stems to the right of the note head, facing up, when they are below the middle line of the staff. When they are on or above the middle line, they are drawn with stems on the left of the note head, facing down.

Its rhythm syllables are ta-ah.

The American term half note is a 19th-century loan translation of German halbe Note.

The names of this note (and rest) in other languages vary greatly:

The Catalan, French and Spanish names for the note (all meaning "white") derive from the fact that the minima was the shortest unfilled note in mensural white notation, which is true as well of the modern form. The form in the earlier black notation resembles the modern quarter note (crotchet). The Greek, Chinese, Japanese and Korean names mean "half" and in Greek, both the modern word (miso - ฮผฮนฯƒฯŒ) and the older (imisi - ฮฎฮผฮนฯƒฮน) are used. For the rest, the word "pafsi" (ฯ€ฮฑฯฯƒฮท) is used; this means "pause".
