Since "Tha" means "is," is the single letter "e" the Gaelic word for "he"?

e is the word for he and i is the word for her. To make things even more interesting, both of those letters also mean "it"

Tha e is both he is and it is.

Is that to do with grammatical gender? As in, if you're talking about a feminine object youd use the word for she to mean it?
