    It's not used for someone who gets up early. It's used for someone who feels energetic and awake when they've just got up, or early in their day. People often say "I'm not a morning person", which just means "if you want to talk to me when I'm in a better mood, don't speak to me when it's still early". Technically there is no opposite to a morning person. A morning person is a term for people who like to be up early and who are bright and alert, you're either a morning person or you're not. So I'd say there is no opposite. But it's true that a person who comes alive and feels comfortable at night (like me) is a nocturnal person or a night owl.

     

    "Nightowl" is one expression.

     

    It's not just what they're used to, it is what feels more natural to them.
    Some people have more energy in the morning but get tired at night and some people have more energy at night and hate the morning.

    A night owl
