Did You Know?
MacGyver's given name was not revealed until near the end of the show in the episode "Good Knight MacGyver: Part 2". Before that when someone asked, "Do you have a name?" he answered, "Yes," but did not reveal it. MacGyver's name was originally Stace MacGyver (according to the script for the pilot). Nobody used the name during the pilot; when it slipped out and became general knowledge to the fans, they decided to just call him "Mac" or Macgyver" for the duration. The name Angus was chosen because they felt it was unusual and something with an "ick" factor (although, not according to any Scots in the audience). The name was "suggested" from a poster for a charity event in Canada, where the series was being filmed at that time. See more
When MacGyver and Merlin are caught on the trap door in the cave and MacGyver tells him he's going to swivel around on the pivot point, Merlin shouts out about both words in a confused tone saying, "Speak English!", yet later in the episode he knows what a pivot is when holding a pair of scissors.
