Why are spring rolls called spring rolls?

So, I'm doing some research for a friend's cookbook, and we were wondering, why are Vietnamese spring rolls (the fried kind, not the cold rice-paper kind) called spring rolls? What's the Vietnamese name for these rolls? Any other interesting history? thanks!
