Coordinate files contain atom *names*, not atom *types.*

If you're manually constructing a topology, you need to introduce all
the necessary atom types. The tip3p.itp topology assumes that the water
atom types (and associated parameters) have already be read from a
parent force field. If you only have a ligand topology and water
topology in your system .top, then you will be missing the definitions
of the water atom types.
