007 is the code name for James Bond. The secret agents are given special numbers to be associated with. May be this was just selected at random.

It is quite simply his code-name. The idea was that official correspondence would not identify the person, so he could use his real name in all his dealings without being associated with his actual employment.

Ian Fleming was a spy himself, and may well have have a similar code-name. I know that he had a wry sense of humour and often thought up interesting names for Mr Bond's enemies. One agent was triple X, XXX. Another was Pussy Galore.
