And this isn't TOS, but the name William Riker probably comes from William Rice, the lead character of Roddenberry's first series The Lieutenant.
I always thought it was just a twist on Willard Decker from TMP. The whole Riker/Troi romance scene where they first meet and then mention "not being able to say goodbye" was very similar to the Decker/Ilia scene.
