And it looks even more like the Yiddish "yente" ((gentle/noble) woman).

Yep, the similarity to Yiddish made it easy for me to remember this one.

"Jente" and "Gutt" are specifically for kids? Or they can be used for teenagers and young people in general?

They can be used for young people, but it would depend on the context. Most often for kids. Usually not used for people above 18.
