This one time, at band camp, Jeremy Boynes said:

JB>On 12/21/03 the PPMC and the greater community voted to keep the name 
JB>Geronimo for this project with 48 votes for and 24 votes against. Total 
JB>binding votes were 15 to 1. Total non-binding votes were 33 to 23.
JB>
JB>During the vote, the primary concern was over the possibility of a 
JB>complaint arising from the use of the name. The PPMC takes this concern 
JB>very seriously and weighing this risk was certainly a factor in the vote.
JB>
JB>There has been no complaint to date from the use of the name, which has 
JB>achieved traction and awareness in the larger community. If a genuine 
JB>complaint should arise, full cooperation will be given to resolve the 
JB>issue expeditiously.
JB>
JB>Continued care will be taken by the project to treat the name with 
JB>respect and to avoid any stereotypic or caricatural usage in the future.
JB>
JB>This is a serious matter and has consumed a substantial amount of time 
JB>and bandwidth. With this vote complete and the community's voice on 
JB>record, it is time for us to put it behind us and move on. Let us focus 
JB>our skill and energy on developing the best application server out 
JB>there, Apache Geronimo.
