"Hex" is a relatively new word in English, which comes from German verb hexen, to do witchcraft. The German word for witch, Hexen share etymological roots with English "hag" and Swedish hagga. Swedish häxa, like English "hex", is a recent borrowing from German Hexen (less than 400 years ago, from my brief etymological inquery).
