A quick note on the origin of the name: it's [[ShoutOut named after]] Fleming's house in Jamaica, Goldeneye, which is in turn named after Ian Fleming's (who was at the time in British Naval Intelligence) plan for maintaining control of Gibraltar in the event that fascist Spain entered UsefulNotes/WorldWarII on the side of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, which in turn is named after Carson [=McCullers=]' novel ''Reflections in a Golden Eye''.

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuseIsNoExcuse: Backstory and motivations aside, Bond notes that "mad little" Alec is using his FreudianExcuse as a cover for his crimes, deconstructs it by telling that his FreudianExcuse still doesn't justify why he's doing it, and notes that Trevelyan is only using the satellite to make himself richer through an economic crisis. Which kind of makes sense from Bond's POV: 006 faithfully served MI6 for years before faking his death.
