Yes... But any given sphere can be divided in many points of reference, creating different hemispheres (this is more visible if said sphere has different attributes across its surface).
With regards of Earth (which has lots of different attributes spread across its surface), it has been divided in two ways:
  • X-axis (through the Equator): Creating the Northern and the Southern Hemispheres.
  • Y-axis (through the Primer Meridian and the 180º Meridian): Creating the Western and the Eastern Hemispheres.
Which brings us the 4 Hemispheres of Earth.

A part of me has always felt we're neglecting another obvious division
  • Z-axis (through the 90º Meridians): Creating two more unnamed Hemispheres
As for naming, maybe the 'Front 90' and 'Back 90' though that sounds a little like golf...
