The prefix hex- denotes a six sided polygon, so a hexagonal prism will have a six-sided base and, in total, will have eight faces: it is an octohedron.

Provided the faces are all regular the hexagonal prism is referred to as a semiregular polyhedron, but could be defined in other terms if the faces are irregular.
