Salutations matinales


Explanation:
Can be taken formally or ironically as in English: morning salutations.
"Bonjour" as such does not make the distinction between morning & afternoon that is contained in the original.

"Bonjour!" or "Bien le bonjour!".


Explanation:
This is what we say. That is, if you are talking about the wish one gives in the morning. If this is part of a sentence such as "I have had a good morning", you would say: "j'ai eu une excellente matinée"
