The little person one drags around in Google Street View is called "pegman", because he is shaped like a clothes peg. A clothes peg is an old-fashioned clothes pin that does not have any metal or moving parts. A clothes peg is often seen in old-timey movies on a person's nose when they must drink something that tastes nasty.
Two friends are looking at an online map together to find directions to a place. One friend says, "Hey, drag the pegman onto the map so we can see the street view."

The little yellow icon on google maps that you click and drag onto the map to see the street view. He looks like an old-timey clothes peg and a man, ergo PEGMAN!
Two friends looking at a map online:

Friend 1: Hey, drag the pegman onto the map so we can see the street view.

Friend 2: Is the pegman the little orange guy you click and drag onto the map to see the street view?

Friend 1: Yes.
