Just been watching LOM episode 7 and there’s a character in there called Billy Kemble! reminded me of Frank Kemble and Billy Martin from The Sweeney episode Ringer! I wonder if this is where the characters name in LOM originated from! I mean you have the comparison of Jack Carter from Get Carter as opposed to Jack Regan and George Carter whom we all know!

The name George Cowley (The boss of CI5 in The Professionals) was also used for a totally different briefly seen character in a New Avengers episode.
The name George Smiley was also used in The Professionals, as the name of a lorry driver witness that the villain murdered - it was of course the name of Alec Guiness character in Tinker Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
