    does the term "good-hearted person" also exist then? Are the exchangeable?

    also: 'big hearted'-großherzig, 'soft-hearted'-weichherzig, 'warm-hearted-warmherzig' but found no 'good-hearted'

    'herzensgut' und 'gutherzig' ist übrigens auch im Deutschen nicht hundertprozentig dasselbe...

    Pons-Collins:
    herzensgut - good-hearted
    Herzensgüte - good-heartedness
    gutherzig - kind-hearted, kindly

    Good-hearted sounds fine to me; you could also say 'a good person at heart,' if you like that any better.

    There is a country music song that says "She is a good-hearted woman..." - so, I suppose it does exist.
