I'm not a native speaker but AFAIK, a "handle" is just something you can 
grasp some object at.

So a handle (type THandle) might be something to denote a certain object 
without forcing to have it a known memory address (such as Pointer or a 
TObject sibling would need) .

Thus I feel that it might not be such a bad idea to use THandle in a 
non-windowish Widget Type code.
