Technically the evening meal is known as dinner. Supper is what refers to the largest meal of the day whether that be lunch or dinner.

Edit: breakfast is out of the question since English speaking countries typically have a light breakfast.

This is the inverse answer.

 

Dinner is the largest/most significant meal of the day.

 

Supper is the description of the evening meal.  My trips to China often included supper as a bowl of congee at 9-10 PM whereas dinner was a massive family gathering mid-late afternoon would be qualified as dinner. 

 

Example of a source (many back this definition up): http://blog.dictiona...pper-vs-dinner/

 

Edit - Ugh...I just had a brain fart moment reading this.  I spent a minute trying to ensure that "supper" was the word I meant because my brain felt it didn't look like a word for some reason.

The rural folks in GA tend to call lunch "dinner" and dinner "supper." It causes a bit of confusion to someone like me who has always called them "lunch" and "dinner" respectively.

Mashed potatoes, corn, and pork chops. Not necessarily in that order.

Actually a real smart genius man, but I'll never show it.
