Lactose intolerance is a misnomer. Many people are unaware of what it actually is and means. Almost everyone on the planet is lactose intolerant, it's just to what degree. The majority of adult humans don't produce the lactase enzyme needed to break down lactose. More correctly it's to what degree are you intolerant. Generally speaking, yes you could be half lactose intolerant.
