I heard the Romulans were inspired by the Romans.
Even to the point of having a character named Decius and being ruled by a Praetor in "Balance of Terror."

As for the Klingons, the story is that they were named after Lt. Wilbur Clingan, a colleague of Gene Roddenberry's when he was an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department.
