English term or phrase: spring's morning flower
alright, this needs to be both firstname and surname of a japanese girl.maybe spring could be the first name? you make it pretty, if it needs any suggestions or you know a better way of saying something similar, please tell me. this is for a fanfic, so do worry if it sounds fanciful.could also be morning flower of spring or dawn flower of spring flower of dawn ,etc. etc.

Japanese translation:Haruka Akatsuki 春花 暁
Explanation:
First Name: Haruka= Spring Flower
Last Name: Akatsuki= Morning/Dawn

First Name
Haru: Spring (春)
Ka: Flower (花 or 華)

Last Name
Akatsuki: Morning/Dawn (暁)

I struggled with this name a bit! I first thought of Hana Shungyou (華 春暁.) In this case, the first name is Flower and the last name is Spring Morning. The last name, Shungyou, is a phrase often used in Haiku and Tanka poems. It's nice, but sounds more Chinese than Japanese, I guess.

Other options were there, as well, but they didn't sound good when combinded. My choice is Haruka Akatsuki. Haruka is a very pretty girl's name. Ka (flower) can be either Chinese character,花 or 華.

It's not quite your suggestion, i.e., Spring for the first name, but I think the meaning is still there; Spring's flower in Morning.

It's pretty.
Good luck!
