Which other pronoun would you suggest?
A name is not a he or a they or me or you.
As you already answered... the 'oH is the it in the sentance.

loDnI'wI' ghaH HoD'e'
The captain is my brother.

The captain is not an "it" (don't tell him that anyways).  So in this case
the pronoun ghaH is acting as the verb.
