This topic is very close to my heart because I am in the process of choosing a name for my first child.

A name is an identity. It very succinctly tells those who aren't familiar with your product who you are, what you sell, what your business "mission" is... Localrewards reminds me of a credit card marketing scheme. Yuck! Winwin just sounds good. It's playful, and it gives you an idea of what the business might be selling.
