A Prismthe faces are called bases

The faces are always rectangles on prisms, so if it's a triangular prism the bases are triangles; if it's a rectangular prism, the bases are rectangles; if it's a hexagonal prism, the bases are hexagons. Any polygon can form the base of a prism. Some people also consider cylinders to be circular prisms. In which case any closed plane shape can form the base of a prism.

1 hexagonal prism = 8 faces (2 hexagons, 6 rectangles), 18 edges, 12 vertices.

A prism.

A pentagonal prismoid. If the lateral faces were rectangles, it would be a pentagonal prism.

No polyhedron has five sides as a pentagon and a hexagon has six sides

It's called, not altogether surprisingly, a hexagonal prism. If the bases were hexagons and the other faces were triangles, it would be a hexagonal antiprism.
