Geronimo was a prominent leader of the Bedonkohe Apache who fought during the Apache Wars. His name means One Who Yawns, so he may not have been a morning person.  His name was popularised by the WW2 US paratroopers after watching a 1939 movie about Geronimo.  The film lead them to start shouting "Geronimo" to show they had no fear of jumping out of airplanes.
